35 This was 40 Historical and Theoretical Matters in contradistinction to orthodox belief at the time - at least as espoused by many - that supply created its own demand. Second, the White Paper adopted the Keynesian belief that, contra neoclassicism, 'one of the chief threats to full employment is, therefore, the instability of private capital expenditure and of expenditure from overseas'. 36 The tone of the paper was broadly optimistic though, interestingly, given the eventual debate associated with Keynesian social democracy, inflation was not ignored as a potential problem.

Social democrats, then, accept parliamentary institutions as a central feature of a political system.

Political democracy is conceptualised as a necessary and welcome reform of society in the nineteenth century, but ultimately an inadequate one.

Third, state policies redistribute the economic surplus in progressive ways, through welfare programs, social insurance and tax laws.
