If this turned out to be the case, social saving out of tax revenue would have to be undertaken to replace the private saving lost because of the abolition of interest payments on private savings. While the government would endeavor (implicitly rather than explicitly) to match up the marginal disutility to the representative taxpayer of paying taxes earmarked for business capital investment to the marginal productivity of capital investment to the representative business enterprise, it would doubtlessly be true that the marginal disutility of paying these taxes to each and every taxpayer would not be equal to the marginal productivity of capital investment to each and every business enterprise.

In fact, this particular indication suggests PRAGMATIC MARKET SOCIALISM 41 the likelihood of an efficiency advantage of pragmatic market socialism (higher output through higher labor) which would supplement its equity advantage (in terms of the model, lower inequality of consumption). The story on saving is somewhat more complicated. In a "preliminary" benchmark solution reported below in Chapter 4, Section A, the possibility is shown of higher private household saving under pragmatic market socialism than under capitalism.

If we represent aggregate capital management effort by the symbol E and arbitrarily set the multiplicative term involving ordinary labor equal to 1, we may represent the production function (equation 12) as Q =AK-E'Y, a form which clarifies the distinction between physical capital K and capital management effort A GENERAL EQUILIBRIUM MODEL E. 47 The output elasticity of physical capital K is e, while the output elasticity of capital management effort E, a qualitatively different concept, is y. As mentioned above, the production function is linear homogeneous, so that 1- LOi = e + y.
