Furthermore, they find that an equal income distribution is not perceived as fair when contributions are unequal. The results are reported in their paper "Equity theory and fair inequality: A neuroeconomic study", which is joint with The Choice Lab researcher Erik Ø. Sørensen and Tom Eichele, Kenneth Hugdahl and Karsten Specht from the University of Bergen. The paper was recently published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS).
