Maslow's Pyramid of Needs is a well-known theory in psychology that explains how human beings have different needs that must be met in order to achieve a fulfilling life. The theory is often presented as a pyramid, with the most basic needs at the bottom and the higher needs at the top. According to this theory, the needs at the bottom of the pyramid must be met before the needs at the top can be fulfilled.

One interesting application of Maslow's Pyramid of Needs is in understanding how people's level of wealth affects their ability to plan for the future. Specifically, people who live in poverty are more reactive, while people who live in better conditions are more proactive.

At the bottom of Maslow's Pyramid are physiological needs, which include basic things like food, water, and shelter. People who live in poverty often struggle to meet these basic needs, which means that they are forced to focus on reacting to immediate problems rather than planning for the future. For example, if someone is hungry and doesn't know where their next meal is coming from, they will naturally focus on finding food rather than planning for the future.

The next level of Maslow's Pyramid is safety needs, which include things like financial security and personal safety. People who live in poverty often struggle to meet these needs as well, which means that they are constantly dealing with threats to their safety and financial stability. This again forces them to focus on reacting to immediate problems rather than planning for the future.

The higher levels of Maslow's Pyramid include love and belonging, esteem, and self-actualization. These needs are more focused on personal growth and development, and they are often only achievable once the lower needs have been met.

People who live in better conditions, on the other hand, often have the resources and security they need to plan for the future. They can focus on their higher needs without worrying about meeting their basic physiological and safety needs. This means that they are more proactive and can plan for their future and work towards personal growth and development.
