Social structure on Mars and/or the Moon

Mars One's ambitious project to colonize Mars in 20xx is an exciting one, but I was a little unsatisfied by their answer in terms of social structure - which you can find here: https://www.mars-one.com/faq/mission-to-mars/what-governmental-system-and-social-structure-will-be-implemented-on-mars

So, assuming we started the colonization of Mars or the Moon or both tomorrow, what kind of social structure do you think would work best? For instance, will they use money? And would it be socially sustainable to reward some settlers with greater access to scarce resources than others? These are the kind of questions I ask myself thinking about this, how about you?
