Similarly, it does not incorporate the steeply progressive income tax rates and generous welfare benefits associated with social democratic socialism (in this case, however, the stance of the pragmatic market socialist proposal is neutral rather than directly opposed). There are many, of course, who would be inclined to argue that the observed defects of actual real-world socialist systems are inherent and inevitable, so that any proposal for a socialist system free of these defects is necessarily unviable and utopian.

Given this value, it is almost certainly a relatively inconsequential issue how this aggregate elasticity is distributed over the deciles. For one thing, owing to the concentration of capital wealth under capitalism in the highest deciles of the population, most capital management effort is in fact concentrated in the highest deciles. Therefore it would seem that little error could be injected into the results from not using substantially lower capital management effort elasticities for the middle-to-Iower wealth/income deciles.
