Arthur Stanley Goldberger (November 20, 1930 – December 11, 2009) was an econometrician and an economist. He worked with Nobel Prize winner Lawrence Klein on the development of the Klein–Goldberger macroeconomic model at the University of Michigan.[1] He died at the age of 79.[2]

He spent most of his career at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, where he helped build the Department of Economics. He wrote classic graduate and undergraduate econometrics textbooks, including Econometric Theory (1964), A Course in Econometrics (1991) and Introductory Econometrics (1998). Among his many accomplishments, he published a number of articles critically evaluating the literature on the heritability of IQ and other behavioral traits.[1]

In 1968 he was elected as a Fellow of the American Statistical Association.[3]
