What is meant by human needs? And how many they are?

Jacque fresco mentioned a lot that an RBE will satisfies successfully every human need, nevertheless he never explained how many they are.

I have been reading about differents references and definitions about human needs, my purpose is trying to find the best source or definition for the construction of an economic theory of the RBE.

Is Maslow’s pyramid a good and updated reference?


I think he did mention a list sometimes, things like food, shelter, medicine, education. But indeed Maslow’s pyramid is more detailed. Maybe check his book “The Best That Money Can’t Buy”? It surely is in there, I haven’t read it in a while. But if it’s not in there, then that book missed a critical topic.
