Fair use rationale for Image:Pyat rublei 1997.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Pyat rublei 1997.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lachvjnvnbking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Vertical & Horizontal equity[edit]

In my class today on the Federal income tax, we're discussing vertical equity and horizontal equity. I'll be adding content to this article as we learn more, but I'd appreciate a little help!  :) Andrew Gradman talk/WP:Hornbook 20:01, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Dr. Charness's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Charness has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


1) This article misses the idea that equity is not equality. The equity principle has to do with people getting what they deserve. For example, if one party contributes more effort or resources to a joint project than others do, it can be argued that this party should receive a higher proportion of the benefits than those others.


We hope Wikipedians on this talk page can take advantage of these comments and improve the quality of the article accordingly.

Dr. Charness has published scholarly research which seems to be relevant to this Wikipedia article:

Dr. Moreno-Ternero's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Moreno-Ternero has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


Equitability in fair division means every person’s subjective valuation of their own share of some goods is the same. The surplus procedure (SP) achieves a more complex variant called proportional equitability. For more than two people, a division cannot always both be equitable and envy-free.

This paragraph is very weak. The previous two could also be improved. In the last forty years, a variety of formal criteria of economic justice have been introduced in economic theory (see, for instance, Thomson (2014) and the literature cited therein). These criteria have broad conceptual appeal, as well as significant operational power, and have contributed considerably to our understanding of normative issues concerning the allocation of goods and services. Some focal references are the following: Fleurbaey, M., Maniquet, F., 2006. Fair income tax. Review of Economic Studies 73, 55-83.

Dr. Vadovic's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Vadovic has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


1. "Equity or economic equality is the concept or idea of fairness in economics, particularly in regard to [income,] taxation or welfare economics." insert the text in brackets

2. "Equity may be distinguished from economic efficiency in overall evaluation of social welfare. Although 'equity' has broader uses, it may be posed as a counterpart to economic inequality in yielding a "good" distribution of wealth. It has been studied in experimental economics as inequity aversion."

Edit this paragraph as follows: "Equity may be distinguished from economic efficiency in overall evaluation of social welfare. Although 'equity' has broader uses, it may be posed as a counterpart to economic inequality in yielding a "good" distribution of wealth. It has been studied in experimental economics as inequity aversion."

"Equity should be distinguished from the concept of economic efficiency. Equitable distribution of resources does not imply efficiency. For instance, in a competitive market with intersecting supply and demand, if everyone trades, the social welfare is lower than it would be in the efficient competitive equilibrium. Although 'equity' has a broader scope, it may pose as a counterpart to economic inequality in yielding a "good" distribution of wealth. It has been established by behavioral and experimental economists that is part of human nature to be averse to inequitable treatment or unequal distribution of resources.[ref. Fehr & Schmidt, 1999 and Bolton & Ockenfels, 2000]"
