Barthélemy-Charles-Pierre-Joseph Dunoyer de Segonzac (20 May 1786, Carennac, Quercy (now in Lot) – 4 December 1862, Paris) was a French liberal economist.

Together with Charles Comte, in 1814, Dunoyer founded the journal Le Censeur, a platform for liberal ideas. Dunoyer would also publish a variety of books on political economy, among them De la Liberté du travail (1845, On the freedom of labour).

He was influenced by the writings of ideologues, including Destutt de Tracy, and the economist Jean-Baptiste Say.
