Material Incentives to Labour
One of the ideals postulated in Marxian ideology was the principle of the distribution of personal income — ‘from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs’.1 Marx believed that in a communist society the workers would rid themselves of greed and acquisitive ambitions, and instead they would be responding only to ‘superior’ motives so that there would be a complete identification of personal and social interest. In his view the gulf between white-collar and blue-collar workers and between managerial and operative functions would disappear, and so would money — the breeder of egoism and contradictions.
