Science-Based Public Policies
Unified theory of capitalism is a scientific economic theory. From this, therefore, science-based public policies can logically be derived. However, public policies cannot directly follow from a scientific theory. Normative theories are needed to give policy choices an ethical justification. This essay seeks to establish the logical relations between positive and normative economics, and then discusses further these relations in the light of the unified theory.
