Jorge S. del Villar is a Mexican writer, economist, journalist and artist.

Art and social engagement[edit]

El Heraldo, El Sol de México and Momento newspapers covered on July 6 and 7, 1986, the opening of an art exhibit of artists linked to San Luis Potosí State at the Casa de la Cultura de San Luis Potosí, unveiled by its then director Francisco Cossío, whose name was later used to rename the cultural center as Museo Francisco Cossio and by Raúl Gamboa Cantón, director of the Instituto Potosino de Bellas Artes. Jorge S. del Villar was nine years old when his paintings were displayed in that exhibition.[1] [2] [3] [4] [2] According to The Baltimore Sun, Del Villar's involvement in his community dates back to his days at university.[5] On November 2, 1997; Carroll County Times' front page covered a Mexican exhibit curated by the Mexican student, interested in sharing his heritage with Maryland's community.[6]

From 2000 to 2002, del Villar served as advisor to Mexican Foreign Minister Jorge Castañeda Gutman.[7] From his column in El Universal, which he wrote from 2004 to 2007, del Villar promoted legislative changes to advance the rights of Mexico City's citizens. [8] He also managed a five hundred cattle limited liability rural production company.[9] [7]

In October 2016, Jorge exhibited the artwork, "The Future of Modern Economic Theory" at JLS Gallery in Mexico City. With this art piece, which was created six months before the 2016 U.S. presidential election, del Villar was one of the precursors of a movement known as "Trump Art".[10][11] The artwork of about 6ft wide and long, consists of the face of Donald Trump with a handwriting message forming a spiral in Mexican pink acrylic, reminiscent of Diego Rivera's and Frida Kahlo's scriptures on top of several paintings. The text invites the observer to change towards a more humane lifestyle and predicts an inevitable change of social and economic paradigms.[11] The exhibit was covered by anchors Adriana Perez Canedo and Javier Solorzano and by La Jornada and El Sol de México. [7] [12] [11] One month after the 2016 U.S. presidential election, del Villar summoned the Mexican population to act upon the eminent threat that the U.S. presidency represented to their country, by feeling pride of their indigenous origin, by promoting Mexican goods and services and by handing out basic necessity goods to the needy on a daily basis.[13]

On December 17, 2016, del Villar published a fiction short story on Medium, where the hypothesis of the piece was that the Russian government had hacked the American electoral informatics system, throwing such an odd disparity between the citizen and the Electoral College votes. Three years later, on July 25th, the US Senate Intelligence Committee concluded that Russia's government actually intervened in the electoral system in all of US states.[14] [15] [16] [17]

During 12 years, Jorge S. del Villar promoted that a sculpture of his diseased father should be set in some public space of Mexico City and on July 12, 2018, a bust of Samuel I. del Villar was unveiled by Azcapotzalco municipality's mayor Pablo Moctezuma Barragán, brother of Esteban Moctezuma current national Minister of Education, with the presence of Rosa Icela Rodríguez, current Mexico City's Minister of the Interior and a number of public figures.[18] [19][20]


Del Villar hosted a radio talk show, "Caras de la Ciudad," at MVS Radio which held discussions with public guests, including cabinet rank government officials, representatives and specialists.[21] The program unveiled matters of national relevance, such as exposing left wing members of Congress who opposed legislation to promote gay rights. [22] [23]

Del Villar has received the Reconocimiento INEGI, given by the autonomous Mexican National Institute of Statistics and Geography, INEGI, for serving society by professionally broadcasting unbiased statistical data and for his contribution as a journalist. Eduardo Sojo Garza-Aldape, former INEGI's president and co-chair of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management UN-GGIM, handed the award.[24]

Jorge del Villar was hired to conduct the TV show "Habla de Frente" which was broadcast by two TV channels simultaneously, Canal Once and Canal Judicial and which was sponsored by Mexico's Federal Electoral Tribunal. According to its former president, Magistrate José Alejandro Luna Ramos, the purpose of the program was to promote a democratic culture, while for Enriqueta Cabrera y Cuarón, former director of Canal Once, this program was fundamental towards creating a sense of citizenship in Mexico.[25][26][27] [28] [29] [30]

In 2016, del Villar conducted, also in Canal Once the TV show, "A Favor y en Contra" where scholars and popular politicians debated about controversial issues.[7]

The Mexican author has written in a diversity of contrasting ideologies Mexican newspapers, including La Jornada;[31] Reforma; [32] during four years, he was columnist for El Universal, [7] [33] and for El Influyente. [34]

Economy and writing[edit]

Jorge graduated Summa Cum Laude from McDaniel College Westminster, MD; with a degree in Economics. He also graduated from SOGEM School of Writers, where some of his professors included Vicente Leñero, Hugo Arguelles, author of Los Cuervos etán de luto, Emmanuel Carballo, Victor Huerta, Monica Lavin and Veronica Murguia[7] [35]

In 2003, del Villar published the short story in fiction La Emperatriz en Voces de los Arcanos[36]

In 2006, he published the work in verse Cantos Modernos; Yo con Jesús[37] [7]

In 2010, Jorge wrote Teoría de Precios: Porqué está mal la Economía ISBN 978-1-59835-271-9 which questions the fundamentals of economic theory. According to Del Villar, while all the components of the market have changed, including economic goods, producers and consumers; the basic theoretical principles have remained the same since 1776 when Adam Smith published An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. Del Villar believes that economic theory, including the Law of Demand, the Law of Supply, and the explanations given to price determination, lacks of scientific rigor. He also considers that the discipline does not provide veridical explanations to the way consumers and producers behave in the real world.[38] Del Villar proposes an integral revision of the fundamental principles upon which economic theory is built and suggests that other disciplines, like anthropology, should be included in such a process. [7][39]

Electronic and printed Mexican media covered Teoría de Precios: Porqué está mal la Economía. Del Villar was interviewed on Televisa's program Primero Noticias and on Radio Formula. The book received reviews in journals and periodicals, such as CEIDAS' journal, México Social, Excélsior newspaper, MVS Radio, and Tiempo Libre magazine.[40] [41] [42] [43]

Del Villar, a graduate of Harvard Law School[46] and founder of the Mexican left wing party PRD and of former ambassador Margarita González Gamio. [47] Del Villar is also great-grandson of Manuel Gamio,[48] considered father of Anthropology in Mexico [49] after whom Zócalo's (Mexico's most emblematic square) adjoining square was named.[50] [51]
