Figueroa achieves his goal by addressing two significant problems. First, to solve the epistemological challenges of building of knowledge, he presents a unified theory of capitalism. Second, he considers the epistemological problem of the role of theory in knowledge. This book therefore deals with a consistent theoretical system. That having been said, these theories—which contain logically correct propositions—may turn out to be empirically false. In order to avoid this error, some rules of knowledge are needed. Growth, Employment, Inequality, and the Environment presents a method that contains such rules. The method is derived from the Popperian epistemology, making it operational in . The proposed unified theory is therefore empirically valid; it is a good approximation of the real world. Theoretical is thus treated under explicit epistemological rules: theory is the servant, not the master.
