Abstract:

In the justice literature, a state of equity exists when actors perceive that their outcomes are proportional to their inputs. However, this definition confounds whether actors derive equity from their own and others’ actual contribution, or from contributions relative to what people are capable of giving. In this planned study we describe both a pilot study and a laboratory experiment that establish public goods systems. In those systems, (1) initial endowments are distributed unequally, (2) members contribute unequally, and (3) either absolute contributions or contributions relative to endowments are made salient. Using a formal model for predicting injustice experience, we will test whether these types of contribution play a role in determining perceptions of fairness.
