 English term or phrase: utility vector "A person's utility is really a vector, having components like fertility, life expectancy, IQ, etc. Suppose you wish to compare Jane and Mary. If Jane has all components of the utility vector greater than Mary then you can conclude that Jane is more successful than Mary. If, however, some components are greater for Jane while others are highest for Mary then no conclusion is possible. Wealth is just a component of such a utility vector. Assuming a scalar utility like money is an approximation. In simple problems it may work fine but in the real world it is inadequate."

المنفعة الكمية الموجهة

Explanation:
اعتقد ان المقصود من خلال النص هو جعل المنفعة (كمية) بحيث يمكن حساب عناصرها اومقوماتها ومعرفة من يمتلك النصيب الاكبر او الاصغر من تلك الكمية وكذلك وجهتها
