When you think attenuation, always remember, it's not just the loss that causes the collapse of the eye; it's the frequency-dependent loss.
While the authors correctly state that "support for growth attenuation and support for improved social service funding are not clearly at odds, nor are the two mutually exclusive," a fundamental issue is where one devotes one's attention.
