Does the loss of tax revenue matter in the face of the nuanced effect of more equal wealth distribution? Is it actually better to have rich people around? They just raise the prices of commodities like land, and consumer goods. A trickle of taxation does help that. And unless they're actively investing their money, having a pile of wealth stockpiled drives up inflation due to reduced supply of money.
