The allocation of benefits and burdens by the economy is not a result of deliberate allocation to specific people. The economy emerged from nature as an Spontaneous order and A spontaneous order has no personal intention. Since No personal intention in a spontaneous order means no justice or injustice, the economy can neither be just or unjust.
