The economic system of communism has faced such criticism. At its basis, communism is about everyone sharing equally in everyone's work. As long as one does a day's work, one receives a share of money and/or food and necessities. The theory seems reasonable, but in reality, workers have little reason to work hard because working harder does not benefit them. This leads to a stifling of creativity and production, which hinder economic growth.

Hope this helps. Good luck!
