Equity Theory: A Viable Research Area.
Parks, Arlie Muller
This paper contains an examination of equity theory, which is based on the assumption that when a state of equity exists in an exchange situation, there is a perceived balance between the effort and reward ratios of the individuals involved in the exchange. The paper offers a rationale for examining equity theory in a communication context, presents an extended review of related literature, and provides suggestions for future research. (Author/FL)
