عنوان مقاله [English]
One of the instruments for financing government’s budget deficit in the developing countries, including Iran, is inflation tax, which has been utilized since decades ago. The present article tries to explicate its relation with and impact on the economic justice. Inflation tax is a result of the increase of paper money over the amount the economy needs, which transfers money’s purchasing power from the public to the government. The question here is whether one can regard the rise of injustice as a universal and systemic consequence of inflation tax, regardless of the particular society’s nature. The article’s hypothesis is that inflation tax, among other things, leads to the rise of injustice in the society. The findings show that it leads to the rise of injustice in some different ways. The method adopted in this article is the library one in the phase of gathering information, text analysis in the Quranic and Hadith deductions, and descriptive-analytical in the economic arguments.
