Economic organizations versus government organizations

Economic organizations tend to motivate through carrots (desires). Government organizations tend to motivate through sticks (fear). Is this true? Is it an equilibrium, balance, niche solution to survival? Do people respond, individually, better to carrots, and groups respond better to sticks? Does the function of government, as a decision-making body for a group of individuals, tend automatically towards fear as a motivator? Whereas economic organizations, responding to individuals, tend to market to positive wants and desires?

Hypothesis 1: As an organization's market moves from smaller to bigger customers, the way in which the organization motivates its customers to buy moves from carrots to sticks.

Hypothesis 2: As an organization's size moves from fewer to many people, the organization tends towards motivating its personnel from carrots to sticks.
