Positive statements are objective statements dealing with matters of fact or they question about how things actually are. Positive statements are made without obhivious value judgements and emotions. They may suggest an economy relationship that can be tested by resources to the available evidence. Positive economics can be described as "what is, what was and what probably will be" economics.
