Daniel Cosío Villegas, sus años como economista


  • Márquez, Graciela

    (El Colegio de México)


Daniel Cosío Villegas wore an economist’s suit for more than four decades, period in which he promoted the openness to universal models that would allow Mexican economists contact to the intellectual production of other latitudes. 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. Sus estudios de economía en los Estados Unidos y Europa se convirtieron en un activo para el desarrollo de sus labores de docencia, editoriales y de funcionario público. En todas las dimensiones de su trabajo como economista y fundador de instituciones Cosío Villegas adoptó y adaptó instrumentos teóricos y perspectivas metodológicas que enriquecieron la cultura económica en México.
