Improving Capitalism Through Freedom, Ethics, and Efficiency

  • Henri Savall
Chapter

Abstract

Finally, Bernácer suggests some improvements to the economy functioning. The general philosophy of Bernácer’s recommended economic system is based on three principles: freedom, justice, and efficiency. His work has been influenced by his environment such as his family, social, political, and economic contexts. His methodology helps to enhance his conclusions. The way that he crossed the different methodological options in his work is positivistic and has impacted the outcome of his relevant research on macroeconomics.
