JON HELLER GOLDSTEIN devoted 35 years to public service as an economist working tirelessly to improve the environment and reduce poverty through investment in human capital. In 1964, Dr. Goldstein earned his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Minnesota and went on to play several key roles in the Social Security Administration, Department of the Interior, and on the Endangered Species Committee. Dr. Goldstein's distinguished career with the Department of the Interior, his seminal work on wetlands conservation, and numerous articles on the impact of federal programs on wetlands, will leave a lasting legacy on environmental policy.
The Jon Goldstein Memorial Lecture on Economics and Environmental Policy was established through the generosity of the Richard and Ellen Sandor Family.
