Why Maslow?

Maslows-hierarchy-of-needs

One of the many interesting things Maslow noticed while he worked with monkeys early in his career was that some needs take precedence over others. For example, if you are hungry and thirsty, you will tend to try to take care of the thirst first. After all, you can do without food for weeks, but you can only do without water for a couple of days! Thirst is a “stronger” need than hunger. Likewise, if you are very very thirsty, but someone has put a choke hold on you and you can’t breathe, which is more important? The need to breathe, of course.

On the other hand, sex is less powerful than any of these. Let’s face it, you won’t die if you don’t get it! Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a motivational theory in psychology comprising a five-tier model of human needs, often depicted as hierarchical levels within a pyramid.

In 2005, the wealthiest 20% of the world accounted for 76.6% of total private consumption. The poorest fifth just 1.5%.

If the Governments in Association with Industry Leaders/Owners manage the wealth and Natural Resources around the world, then who is responsible of keeping the 80% of the Population dying of starvation and diseases on the two basic stages of the Maslow Pyramid of Needs?
