Most managers are interested in personal incentives, job security, and status, which may lead them to pursue long-term growth or the advancement of personal careers rather than the profits of the organisation. The exploitation of labour Marxism described the capitalist process in terms of a division of labour in which some people had to sell their labour power to others in order to produce goods, and were exploited for the surplus value of their labour. Value was produced by the labourer, but the capitalist made a profit by buying labour and selling goods at a higher price.

Brazil’s economic problems were a major reason for the military coup of 1963. For many of the critics of Keynesianism, inflation was its Achilles heel, and ultimately it was a concern with inflation which led to its abandonment. Inflation is concerned with the value of money rather than the level of economic activity.

Keynesian economics needs to be located in the context of a form of politics by consent, of government seeking to secure an economic policy through consensus building. This legitimised the importance of functional groups in the making of economic policy. Because the commitment to full employment requires economic agents to make certain concessions, the process of government becomes a series of bargains between groups and the government. Governments therefore became increasingly dependent on vested interests.
