In a thought-provoking new paper , three Yale scientists argue it’s not inequality in life that really bothers us, but unfairness

A nyone looking for evidence that people have a natural aversion to inequality will find numerous laboratory studies that seemingly confirm their view. Studies have found “a universal desire for more equal pay”, “ egalitarian motives in humans”, “ egalitarianism in young children”, and that “ equality trumps reciprocity ”. A Google Scholar search for “inequality aversion” yields over 10,000 papers that bear on this topic.

When subjects in laboratory studies are asked to divide resources among unrelated individuals, they tend to divide them equally . If a previous situation has led to a pre-existing inequality, people will divide future resources unequally in order to correct or minimise the inequality between others. This bias is so powerful that subjects sometimes prefer equal outcomes in which everyone gets less overall to unequal outcomes where everyone gets more overall.
