Abstract : This essay analyzes several theories of motivation advanced by experts in the field and evaluates the position or relationship money has in each theory as a factor in motivating human endeavor. Based on this analysis, the author reaches the persuasive conclusion that money alone will not achieve a motivated work force. Money is determined to be a potent factor to be considered in motivating employees, but today's manager is convincingly advised to be aware of and to use a comprehensive range of tools and techniques to motivate the modern worker. The relationship to these conclusions to application in the military are examined.
