His studies of economics in the United States and Europe became an asset for the performance of his tasks as professor, editor and public official. In all the dimensions of his work as an economist and founder of economic institutions, Cosío Villegas adopted and adapted theoretical tools and methodological perspectives that enriched the economics culture in Mexico.// Daniel Cosío Villegas (1898-1976) vistió la casaca de economista por más de cuatro decenios, tiempo durante el cual promovió la apertura hacia modelos universales que permitieran a los economistas mexicanos un contacto con la producción intelectual de otras latitudes.
