unliterary aside: peoples' needs can be measured accurately and simply by using representational units. For example: 4 = the need for food, 7 = the need to express anger. The decimal, numeric unit, as used in monetry transactions is both convenient and simplistic.

Therefore 4 [food] + 7 [anger] = 11. A person with the score of 11 would be said to be in need of food and needing to express anger.

The score of 11 can instantly be used to calculate an individual's immediate needs and therefore a financially, verifiable outcome. Therefore, this person would be given £11 to supply him/her/child[she/he] with food and alleviate the need to express anger.

This is an oversimplification of the theory, but when it is used to apportion commodities and services to groups of people (for example; thousands) can clearly indicate strategy for meeting the needs of a population.
