    well, say you borrow $100 with 1 percent interest; so without inflation , you would pay at $101 the end of the year; let say there way inflation and money is worth half of what it did last year. so $100 you borrowed has only value of $50 now; so even though you are paying $101 , it is worth same as 101/5 it did when you borrowed it

    I think my answer was more than complete if you bothered to actually read it
