That part is pure Samuelson/Keynes, as conventional as it gets, the Modern part of Monetary Theory is recognizing that Taxes are not necessary to raise State Revenue (the State is already entitled to 100% of your productive output Peon and don’t you forget it!) but to ensure that Official Currency is an accepted medium of exchange because you need it to pay off the Government Bagman.
That’s it. Otherwise inferior Toilet Paper.
