In this chapter, DeVoe and Iyengar argue that the perceived fairness of different allocation norms (e.g., equity and equality) depends on the resource being allocated. In particular, they argue that people have a greater preference for allocating resources equitably when the resource to be allocated is money (or other easily monetized goods) relative to nonmonetized goods.
