Abstract:   (1615 Views)

This article is mainly based on this fact that: "Poverty is the production of power structure and social principles." It is not a natural phenomenon, or even, as a result of human relations. The relationship between power and domination has been considerably enforcing human societies. Despite of big scientific and technological achievements made in many countries recently, we see half of the world population starving and even in countries lie on enormous natural resources, we find millions of people strive for survival. This confusion raises simple miserable historical questions with no answers. "Why do most of the people around the world still have problems with famine and food shortage while a widespread technology can be observed in the realm of science and technology?" "Isn't it as a consequence of ethical failures and turbulence in human societies, political interventions or both of them? What is a Logical reason for delining of such incidents even in countries rich in natural resources?" The Social, humanities and economy sciences have shown a cold shoulder to this inequality and inequity and considered their ignorance as non-existence of these phenomena, because they themselves are the productions of such disorder. Providing some responses to these questions, this article discusses the role of oil income and it's influence on formation of power and development of poverty and inequality in Iran.
