Mexican economist and politician affiliated to the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) who served as President of Mexico from 1988 to 1994. Earlier in his career he worked in the Budget Secretariat eventually becoming Secretary. He was the PRI presidential candidate in 1988, and was declared elected on 6 July 1988.

A tragedy occurred early in Carlos Salinas's life. On 18 December 1951, when was three years old, he, his older brother Raúl, then five, and an eight-year-old friend were playing war with the Salinas family's twelve-year-old maid, Manuela. As part of the game, they decided to execute Manuela, and found a loaded rifle and shot and killed Manuela. It was never determined which of the three boys pulled the trigger and the incident was declared an accident; it was given newspaper coverage in Excelsior at the time. According to one account, the nearly four-year-old Carlos boasted "I killed her with one shot. I am a hero!". A judge blamed the Salinas parents for leaving a loaded weapon accessible to their small children
