Jorge Bielsa Callau

Jorge Bielsa Callau - Speaker TEDxZaragoza 2013Born in 1965 in Saravillo, located in the valley of Chistau of the Aragonese Pyrenees. Son of ranchers and twelfth generation descending from Bernat de Mur who established here in 1572. Swimming against the current all the time, thanks to the intervention and personal effort, he got his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Zaragoza.He worked for three years as a statistician for the Health Institute after joining the faculty body of the University of Zaragoza.

He currently teaches Macroeconomics and his research field is Environmental Economics, with a focus on water and energy. He lately seeks (as the circumstances require)  to expand those fields to global economics and finance,  with a particular interest into the causes and consequences of income distribution. Besides occasional immersions in the land of politics, in an amateur and quick-paced/ time-bound fashion , he presently is yet another citizen astonished and incensed with those who run our society.
