What is the refutation criterion by Karl Popper?
Popper argued tha twhen we test theories in science and ecnomics we do not try to show that they are true. We try to show that tey are wrong by confronting them with evidence. If we can;t show they are wrong we tentatively accept the theories- they arent inconsistent with evidence. Thus, science consists of propositions set out so they can be falsified but which have not yet been falsified.
