4. As Weber states in his chapter on “Bureaucracy” in Economy and Society, the bureaucratic official is “set for a ‘career’ within [a] hierarchical order. … He expects to move from the lower, less important and less well paid, to the higher position. The average official naturally desires a mechanical fixing of the conditions of promotion” (963).
