From each; to each

Conjecture: If the allocation problem is solved by looking at substitutes, perhaps the distribution problem would be solved by looking at complements. 'From each according to his ability' is about substitutes; 'to each according to his need' is about complements. 
Distribution and complementarity are functions of adundance, plenty, and the exercise of grace. 
In the very short term all is abundant and follows the laws of plenty because the production decisions have all been made.
