Why Some Prices Are Fairer Than Others

Many resources, besides money, can be used to acquire things. We show that consumers believe these resources vary in how well they signal someone’s true preferences (i.e., high WTP doesn’t necessarily signal a strong preference). Importantly, these beliefs influence whether people perceive various pricing strategies as fair.
