In many countries, governments have a significant impact on economy through the implementation of monetary and fiscal policies. However, the implementation of inter generational distribution policies, which are in fact the application of fiscal policies in favor of a certain age group of society, has been received less attention by policymakers in developing countries, including Iran.The purpose of this study shows the impact of inter generational fiscal distribution policies on economic growth, using the overlapping generations model developed Blanchard (1985) and calibrating the model, by applying MATLAB software to extract the steady-state equilibrium conditions for consumption growth and capital in Iran economy.

The research results point out that the impacts of distributive fiscal policies on capital growth and consumption growth as two variables affecting the growth rate of the economy, have two separable statuses. The first status belongs to the smoothing rate of consumption in utility functions with constant relative risk aversion (CRRA) which it is less than one; In mentioned situation, by applying distributive fiscal policies in favor of the young age group, the Iranian economy is faced with an increase in capital growth and consumption growth, and the second status is a situation where the smoothing rate of consumption is chosen more than one. In said case, the applying fiscal policies have different results from the previous status.
