Abstract:This paper compares and contrasts some of the characteristics of incentives in both the monetary and subsistence economies. Organised work in a monetary economy is based on the following principles: labour as input, efficiency as a measure of performance and salary or wage as reward. In traditional society work was organised within the framework of a subsistence economy. Participation was conditioned by the overriding concern with communal survival. Some sociological implications are alienation of the worker in a monetary economy and a minimal social differentiation in a traditional society. Notes.
