In any case, its not a meritocratic economic system. All prices, investments and compensation are based on cost-benefit analysis and minimax solutions.
"What do you think the Russians talk about in their councils of state? Karl Marx? They pull out their linear programming charts, statistical decision theories, and minimax solutions and compute the price-cost probabilities of their transactions and investments just like we do."
That is the natural order of things today.
