Title: Passing money on: equity theory and distribution of money in a will
Author: Isaacs, Morton
Abstract: 127 respondents were asked to distribute $100,000 in a will among their four children shown as differing in helpfulness to the respondent and need for the money. The majority of respondents divided the money unequally, with more than 2/3 rejecting a norm of equality in favor of rewarding helpfulness (equity) and relative need. Last year's research produced results favoring equality. Possible reasons for this disparity and implications for further research on Equity theory are presented.
