Along present article we have tried to highlights the main contributions of Lawrence R. Klein to applied economics trough his longer career, both as teacher and as researcher. Having in mind the diffi cult task that means to concentrate the huge amount achievements made by the cited author we have grouped it into four different issues: Economic thought, econometric techniques, applied econometric models and other research fields. A lo largo del presente artículo hemos intentado recoger las principales aportaciones del profesor Klein al amplio campo de la economía aplicada a lo largo de su dilatada carrera como docente e investigador. Siendo conscientes de las limitaciones que puede suponer la revisión completa de una obra tan vasta como la generada por el citado autor hemos optado por agrupar sus principales aportaciones en torno a cuatro grandes apartados: pensamiento económico, métodos econométricos, modelos econométricos aplicados y otras áreas de Investigación.
