Interesting links for November 2016

A LOT has been happening this month!
>> my question: Why the bloody hell is this man, at the very end of his term, still going around vetoing bills (of allowing 9/11 victim families to sue the Saudi govt for their role in 9/11) and writing executive orders? Is there such a precedent in past US presidents? I feel he's behaving as if he has no intention of leaving the US Administration in the near future. What if.. Obama and Hillary do a mutual switch : she becomes president and he becomes secretary of state or some other high executive position, after the election? Won't that result into the prolonging of an 8 year regime into a 16 year regime?
... Last week's attack on multiple websites including Twitter,
Spotify, and Reddit was carried out using internet-connected home
devices as means of overloading the sites, experts have found.
... The "global event" involved "tens of millions" of internet
addresses, analysts said, and used the 'internet of things" - home
devices connected to the web - as a means of overwhelming sites with
coordinated messages from thousands of machines.
>> From a simple cost-benefit analysis point of view, is it worthwhile to even bother going into this IoT thing? The critical requirements here are smallest size, lightest processing and so simplest programming in the devices. And the demands of robust secure systems violate these critical requirements. Obviously manufacturers have a clear motive to not be bothered with properly securing all these devices and would rather outsource that headache to the people implementing them.

"Lets learn from Israel" - Putin
..."But watching bombs fall, at the end of the 20th century, smack
bang in the middle of Europe.. I don't know about you, but for me this
was savagery"
..."Libya : there was a resolution for Libya. What was the resolution
about? You're all experts here - you all know. What did it say? It
said "no fly zone". What kind of no fly zone was it when you proceeded
to bomb the territory? They simply rudely perverted the resolution -
again circumventing the United Nations."
PUTIN: Here's the reason Trump 'behaves extravagantly'
... a comment: He doesnt want to start world war III, and this somehow
makes Trump an asset or operative of Putin?

>> My comment: Isn't it perfectly logical for any country in the world to want that the next leader of nuclear-armed, biggest-military-threat USA have good relations with them? Given Hillary Clinton's shenanigans of blaming Russia for all her problems (without any forensic evidence whatsoever) and long-standing aggressive threats made to the Russians for the most part of her 8-year run Secretary of State career (an absolutely unacceptable example of bad statesmanship), and opposed to that, Trump's completely anti-war statements that there's no reason to be fighting Russia and that US should be working together with Russia to defeat ISIS, isn't it the most logical thing on this planet for Russia to openly and unequivocally support whoever stands any chance at all of keeping Clinton away from the Oval Office and away from the nuclear launch buttons?

People are getting all riled up at the fear of "a mad man like" Trump
having his fingers on the nuclear buttons, but they're forgetting that
Trump doesn't have anyone to be firing them at; he doesn't have large
nuclear-armed enemies and entire civilizations that he wants to
obliterate at all costs like Clinton does; his definition of a strong
military is one that protects the borders and not one that goes around
invading other countries. Whereas Hillary Clinton's track record
proves she very much wants to go on invading and destroying more and
more countries.
AAP government installs air purification units, mist fountains and
virtual chimney to control air pollution in Delhi
... In Pune, air purifiers have been installed where there have been
good results. Here too we can set up these purifiers at the central
verge of the roads. Air treatment system will be in place in oneand-
a-half months," Jain added.
... A senior government officer told Mail Today that a third edition
of the odd-even scheme is not on the cards this year as the Kejriwal
dispensation is considering alternative measures to curb pollution.
Delhi transport minister Satyendra Jain also parried questions on the
next installment of odd-even, but suggested a free lane for buses and
heavy vehicles.
...He said the government in collaboration with National Environmental
Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) and IIT (Bombay) will set up
the entire system within 45 days.
... According to a study by the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur,
no more than 25 per cent of fine, toxic particles are emitted by cars
and trucks in winter and that's why the oddeven scheme remained
..."The MCG in collaboration with the district jail is committed to
provide cotton bags made by inmates. We have managed to distribute one
lakh cotton bags among residents to make the city pollution free,"
Satyaprakash said.
... The MCG has also sought help from women's self help groups to
manufacture these cotton bags which the civic body will buy.

and drop bombs all over the world. The liberal-left: who profess their
support for human rights, internationalism and progressive causes.

The Anti-Trump Protesters Are Tools of the Oligarchy
... Remember how upset progressives were when Trump said he might not
accept the election result if there was evidence that the vote was
rigged? Now progressives are doing what they damned Trump for saying
he might do under certain conditions.
... The Western presstitutes used the protests in Kiev to delegitimize
a democratically elected government and to set it up for a coup. The
protest pay was good enough that non-Ukrainians came from nearby
countries to participate in the protest in order to collect the money.
At the time I posted the amounts paid daily to protesters. Reports
came in to me from Eastern and Western Europe from people who were not
Ukrainian but were paid to protest as if they were Ukrainians.
... I hope no one thinks that simultaneous protests in 25 cities were
a spontaneous event. How did 25 independent protests manage to come up
with the same slogans and the same signs on the same night following
the election?
... The protests in Kiev were equally pointless, because presidential
elections were only months away.
Why Trump's Presidency Is a Win for Europe
By vowing to rebuild American society, scale back foreign militarism,
de-escalate NATO and seek friendly cooperative relations with Russia,
a United States of America under Donald Trump would not only be a boon
for America's best interests. It would also be a win for Europe.
...Much of the current discontent and disaffection among EU citizens
towards the Brussels-based bloc stems from this unnatural and
unhealthy subservience to Washington.
....Wars in the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia and the
attendant problems of blowback terrorism and influx of refugees are
direct results of European governments following Washington's foreign
policy of regime change and so-called «democracy promotion». Even
though these wars have been illegal and vile transgressions of
international law.
...Some 500 million EU citizens are held ransom to war policies by a
coterie of governments who behave like vassals to Washington.
... Often it seems that Brussels is acting as a rubber-stamp for
foreign policies authored in Washington. No wonder then that in the
view of many EU citizens the functioning of the bloc is seen to be
undemocratic and unrepresentative of their immediate needs. This
explains the soaring rise of anti-EU parties right across the bloc.
The phenomenon has less to do with an inherent popular affinity for
parties labelled «far right» or «xenophobic» and more to do with a
popular desire for democratic governance that attends to urgent social
... Integral to the oligarchy are the corporate-controlled media
monopolies that pontificate to the masses on how they should vote in
elections – elections that have become inconsequential to democratic
... Trump's election, like the Brexit before in Britain earlier this
year, is a popular revolt against the oligarchy. The mass of people
have become sickened and wearied by endless wars and endless economic
austerity, while the rich elite become ever more obscenely wealthy,
and all the while the media propaganda system cynically instructs the
people who to vote for and who not to, knowing full well there will
really be no «hope and change».
... Trump struck a deep popular chord when he called US-led wars in
the Middle East a «disservice to our country and a disservice to
humanity». People got it when he lamented how much American
infrastructure, schools, hospitals, roads, jobs, would have benefited
if the trillions of dollars wasted on wars had instead been invested
at home.

Russia Calls Washington's Bluff, Moves to Finish Syrian War
... When the Kerry-Lavrov ceasefire broke down last month due to
Western-backed terrorists breaching the accord and due to the massacre
by the American air force of Syrian troops at Deir ez-Zor on September
17, the Syrian and Russian military resumed operations with greater
intensity on September 22.
... Russia has evidently set an unwavering course on Syria. That is,
to ensure that the Syrian government of President Bashar al Assad
remains in power as the legitimate sovereign authority as mandated by
the people of Syria; and to ensure that the US-led covert war for
regime change is brought now to a swift, definitive end. Taking the
final terrorist redoubt in east Aleppo is crucial to finishing this
nearly six-year war that has cost half a million lives and up to 10
million refugees – nearly half the nation.

5 Times Corporate Media Got Caught Publishing Fake News Causing the

... Whether it is lies that took us to war, or the perception that a
deadly attack was carried out by a certain group, the impressions they
create play a significant role in determining world events. Often
times, that role is one of deception, ensnaring people into supporting
deadly and costly actions
... A now-notorious list of ostensibly "fake" news sites — created by

online in the past two days and was eagerly reprinted by corporate
media presstitutes hoping to vindicate their own failed reporting on

... As an association of both current serving and veteran police

Keepers are duty bound by our oaths to defend the Constitution by
defending the electoral process that is at the core of our republican
form of government. Any attempt to intimidate and coerce an Elector,
through threats of violence, is an act of terrorism, just as much as
an attempt to coerce the voters on Election Day would have been
terrorism. We expect to see such horrid behavior from the likes of

to their heads and are ordered to vote for "El Presidente" … "or
else." But now we are seeing the same kind of political terrorism
here, at home. This is un-American and unacceptable.

audacity to think they can attempt to intimidate others just because
they think they are right. Here's a wake-up call to some on the left

who have a different opinion than them: it is this hubris that cost

abuse and dehumanization through their art and events, leaving us to
only speculate about what they do behind closed doors.

Election Reflections and an Open Letter to Donald Trump - From Foster Gamble
... I object strongly to any of Trump's proposals that are based in
violations, such as:
- expanding Guantánamo
- reinstituting torture
- condoning carpet bombing
- threatening to kill the families of those trying to defend
against imperialist attacks on their families, their cultures and/or
the theft of their country's gold
- supporting random "stop and frisk"
- punishing women for choosing what they do with their own bodies
- dividing immigrant families already here in the U.S.
- expanding nuclear, fracking, coal and other destructive and
unnecessary energy technologies

...I do, however, recognize Trump's equally powerful proposals for
non-violation that we can celebrate — and which demonstrate, by
contrast, how the principle of non-violation is missing in the
proposed policies above. For example, I deeply appreciate Trump's
stated intentions:
- to make peace with Russia
- to audit (and hopefully shut down) the Federal Reserve
- to disband NATO, which I am convinced has become simply the
emerging imperialist One World Army for the New World Order, and
obligates countries to commit soldiers, weapons and taxpayer money to
any member country that claims it is being threatened.

...I admire his informed positions against:
- mandatory vaccination
- coercive globalization
- establishment politics
- the TPP — The Trans-Pacific Partnership and other coercive
sovereignty destroying trade deals
- the bankers' scheme of using false premises about global warming
data to authorize a one world government structure, under their
control, and the mandatory global taxes to fund it.

...The destructive human-caused pollution of the air, soil and
waterways is very real and is one of the reasons our ThriveConnect
initiative is working so hard to bring forward new, clean energy
technologies. But pollution is not solved by Cap and Trade, nor by a
propagandized, false understanding of what causes climate change.
... The funds he will need for infrastructure and other projects could
be easily raised by eliminating the illegitimate Federal Reserve and
its debt and cutting imperialist spending rather than increasing the
military budget.
... Many of the Left and even some on the Right are calling Trump
"racist, bigoted, sexist, misogynist, xenophobic," and even a
neo-Nazi. I have watched very carefully, and I fully understand how
tens of millions have gotten this impression, both here and abroad. He
fed right into it, as did the Liberal and even the Conservative media.
I still believe he and his team have the opportunity and the
obligation to meticulously clear this up, if I am correct in my
observation that these accusations are not actually accurate or to be
the basis of his policies.
... Our conversation on "refugees" from the Middle East is confused by
the lack of acknowledgment that the majority of them are fleeing their
home countries because of the violence of U.S. attacks, intended to
destroy their culture, infrastructure and currencies, followed by
taking over their gold, oil and banking system. Stop the wars and most
of the tragic and unmanageable exodus would stop, too. I believe this
would only have gotten worse with Hillary in charge.
... Forced acceptance of refugees or simply migrants, as we are now
clearly seeing throughout European countries like Germany, Italy,
Austria and Sweden, can lead to grave economic and social destruction
of the host countries. It doesn't work to penalize one group in the
course of attempting to help another.
... It requires that we stop creating the motive for such retaliation
and stop acting like we are not vulnerable to the consequences of
globalist terrorism of which the U.S. has been a central culprit.
... I perceive Trump as wanting to vet potentially dangerous
immigrants and uphold laws against illegal immigration. Kellyanne
Conway and others on his team do a pretty good job of describing this,
but Trump's inadequate and confusing rhetoric has millions angry and
afraid — I believe unnecessarily — although understandably.
... Any accomplished athlete, scientist or artist fails many times in
the process of reaching a high level of proficiency. The same holds
true for business. I believe Trump's bankruptcies may have trained him
well for dealing constructively with the $70+ trillion in government
and banking elite-created U.S. debt and unfunded liabilities that
threaten to enslave our grandchildren.
Trump destroys media stars face to face in his golden tower
... Way back at the beginning of the presidential campaign, I said
that if Trump does nothing but run against the media he'll be doing
the country a great service, because they're all snakes and cover-up
artists and liars and they've been hypnotizing the population for as
long as they've been around. Trump went on to exceed my expectations
in that regard.
... Trump is carrying out a sustained war against big media. He hasn't
stopped. There is no sign he will stop. He knows, and Bannon knows,
that the public is fed up with mainstream media.
... The unchallenged authority of The News has been cracked like an egg.
An open letter to Steve Bannon, Trump's inside man

Study says demonetisation may spell doom for the economy: Here's why
... The report said though some may presume that prices will fall as
supply would exceed demand, there is a possibility of prices rising if
supply too is curtailed.
... It is the sowing season for the Rabi crop in some parts of the
country and the harvesting season for the Kharif crop and most
purchases and sales in the segment would be made in cash. The report
said farmers would find it difficult to sell their Kharif crop due to
the cash crunch.
... This would then affect their bargaining power, preventing them
from getting a good price. Whereas, those planning to sow won't get
access to inputs. So the farmer won't be able to reap the full
benefits of a good monsoon.
... It further said if the demand for credit is not sensitive to
interest rates, then banks could take more risks while lending. The
housing loan bubble of the US economy might be one such example of
lending to more risky projects, thereby bringing in more volatility
into the system.
... Experts have said that most people with large amounts of black
money do not keep it in cash. So the government still has the
opportunity to take corrective action. It can either roll back the
move or allow people to use the old currency notes for a few more
months, or even postpone the deadline to submit them.

>> What is the very last para in this article hinting at? When you have huge volumes of cash to move around, slip-ups are inevitable, and the officials in charge are having such large workload and pending deliverables that we can expect they will be prejudiced towards covering up rather than sounding alarms about missing cash. Meaning at some or the other place there would be people making off with the cash, new or old. Then co-relate this with the reports of far-flung areas banks still in shortage of money etc. What if money WAS dispatched to them but got lost in transit? Forget public disclosure - is even government tracking any of it? Or is this a free-for-all with enough new bills flying off the presses to cover up for the stashes that go missing?

India Second Unequal Country In The World: Wealth Report
... India is the second most unequal country in the world with the top
one per cent of the population owning nearly 60 per cent of the total
wealth, according to a report.
... According to Global Wealth Report 2016 compiled by Credit Suisse
Research Institute, the gap between the world's haves and have-nots
does not appear to be getting any narrower and a mere 0.7 per cent of
the global population owns nearly half the world's wealth.
Demonetisation is a permanent transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich
Land lost, savings lost, commissions paid, loans bailed out – these
will not come back.
... This unequal impact starts from within households. Working-class
women married to alcoholic, abusive or simply irresponsible husbands
all keep cash squirrelled away for emergencies. Now that money has to
be either lost or revealed and, in either case, the woman loses her
security, exploiting her becomes easier.
... Farmers unable to sow their rabi crop or to sell their produce
will have to turn to moneylenders, especially since demonetisation has
effectively shut down cooperative banks, who are still not allowed to
change money. In the process, they will pay high rates of interest,
and if they can't repay the loan, they may lose their land too.
... The same applies to workers who are being laid off in droves and
small factory owners who are facing closure themselves. All of these
people are being forced to turn in desperation to informal finance and
risk losing assets in return.
... Everyone who has to change money in a hurry – for food, medical
expenses or emergencies – is being forced to approach brokers. ...
With these rates (Rs 400 for a Rs 500 note and Rs 800 for a Rs 1,000
note) being widely reported, whoever is changing money is losing 20%
of that money's value overnight.
>> important to note : The only people who are in a HURRY to change money are the ones who need it for genuine reasons and aren't criminals. The criminals can easily wait this out.
... Small vendors, shopkeepers and hawkers are all losing business to
those with card machines (to the extent that people are not postponing
purchases). Lest you believe in PayTM, you need a smartphone to use
it, and a tax information number if you want to earn more than Rs
10,000 through it. Vendors have begun to sell off their carts and
shopkeepers to close down their shops, and that process will only
... At the macro level, this pattern of wealth transfer is repeating
itself. Flush with cash sucked out of circulation, banks are lowering
interest rates. Some seem to expect this to lead to increased
investment, but it isn't clear why investment will occur when the cash
crunch means there is little or no demand.
... However, there is one group who will immediately benefit from
lower interest rates – those holding loans, the larger the better.
Consider this: according to data in March 2015, India's 10 most
indebted corporate groups were holding Rs 7.3 lakh crores in bank
debt. A drop in interest rates by a single percentage point would
benefit these 10 companies with Rs 7,300 crores this year alone. If
this just seems like good luck, consider that this benefit is
occurring purely because crores of people cannot access their own
money. Banks and corporates are effectively utilising that money
rather than its owners.
... that means Rs 11,400 crores in unreturned notes. What will happen
to this money?
... The most widely reported plan is for the Reserve Bank of India to
give the government a higher dividend based on unreturned notes,
despite the apparent illegality of such a move. If that happens, for
the amount taken from the poor at least, any dividend would be
straightforward robbery. If it does not happen, the savings are still
gone, and those without them will be forced into more desperate
situations – leading to the same losses outlined above.
... None of these shifts are going to be reversed after 50 days. Land
lost, savings lost, jobs lost, commissions paid, people dead from lack
of food or medicine – these will not come back. The gains and losses
are permanent. Moreover, the massive transfer of wealth that
demonetisation is causing is not due to any productive reason
whatsoever. Those who benefit have done nothing to earn their
windfalls, they gain purely because they are more powerful. There
cannot be a more textbook definition of a regressive economic policy.
... But there is no evidence that this government is serious about tax
evasion. India's biggest tax dodgers are large companies – the single
ongoing case against Vodafone is now worth over Rs 20,000 crores. Yet,
the General Anti-Avoidance Rules, which were brought in 2012 to close
the loopholes that the telecom firm Vodafone was using, were never
implemented. Since 2012, both the United Progressive Alliance and the
National Democratic Alliance have kept postponing implementation of
these rules. This year, the NDA also announced that the rules would
not apply to any transaction before April 2017 (penalising past tax
evasion is reserved for those with cash in suitcases, apparently).
Meanwhile, small tax evaders have faced at most a one-time loss, with
a likely return to normal channels (or new ones, such as Bitcoin) in
... A tax windfall – or an RBI dividend – will certainly lead to some
immediate welfare announcements. But this government has neither the
political intent nor the administrative capacity to implement the
long-term, massive hike in public spending that would be required to
even begin to offset the injustice of demonetisation. Demonetisation
is being portrayed as a crusade against tax evaders to help the poor.
Yet, it will leave India's economy more unequal than before, and its
gigantic population of vulnerable people even more vulnerable. A
masterstroke, indeed.

Interview: Demonetisation move declares all Indians as possible
crooks, unless they can establish otherwise, says Amartya Sen
On the government's demonetisation move, Prof Amartya Sen, in an email
interview to The Indian Express says: "Only an authoritarian
government can calmly cause such misery to the people."
... This will be as much of a failure as the government's earlier
promise of bringing black money stacked away abroad back to India (and
giving all Indians a sudden gift — what an empty promise!). The people
who are best equipped to avoid the intended trap of demonetisation are
precisely the ones who are seasoned dealers in black money — not the
common people and small traders who are undergoing one more misery in
addition to all the deprivations and indignities from which they
It's permanent revolution
Law does not matter, form does not matter. There will be constant mobilisation
... Gambling on demonetisation commits the government, one way or the
other, to come up with new and radical moves with increasing
frequency. If demonetisation fails, the government will have to come
up with something equally radical to make up for this loss. If by some
chance demonetisation is considered a partial success, it will whet
the appetite for more gambling. Either way, expect new googlies from
the government with increasing frequency, whether it is on expenditure
or the taxation side or institutional reform proposals.
... Like all revolutionary talk, this doctrine will have nothing but
contempt for all bourgeois institutional forms. The fact that there is
no governing legislative or statutory provision for rationing money
(as opposed to demonetisation of particular series), will not give
anyone pause. There is no ordinance, no declaration of a financial
emergency. That the RBI's credibility has been severely decimated will
not matter much. It should be truly alarming that a secretary to the
government of India, by fiat, can stand up every morning and issue
more than a hundred and fifty directives regarding your own money. In
the history of independent India, we have not seen this arbitrary a
use of state power when it comes to the sanctity of money. The promise
on your note "I promise to pay the bearer a sum of X rupees" did not
say "only if you keep it in a bank account or only if you withdraw a
certain amount a day or spend it in a certain way or in the case of
marriage withdrawals give it only to people who you can prove do not
have a bank account." Whatever your substantive moves on
demonetisation, the fact that you have rationing without
accountability, seems not to bother us. It is not an infringement of
liberty or exercise of mad discretion. In the age of permanent
revolution, law does not matter, form does not matter. Even the
sovereign's breaking of a promise does not matter; after all, if a
sovereign promises, he can also withdraw the promise.
... The revolution started out by declaring the people as virtuous;
government directives then ended up declaring them cheats. Permanent
revolution begins by appealing to virtue, it ends up using state
>> wow
You have been warned
Demonetisation politics unfolds as a vast morality play. Its
imagination unleashes the state on you, in the name of protecting your
own virtue.
... Second, the measure has failed two reasonable administrative
tests. There is a shocking degree of callousness about the hardships
these measures impose. But equally importantly, as Suyash Rai of
NIPFP, has argued in a wonderful analysis, the policy falls short on
one test: Were there more reasonable, less risky, more predictable
policy measures that would have yielded as much benefit as this one?
The answer is: Yes.
... It would be churlish not to recognise that it comes from the prime
minister's depth of conviction and sincerity. But that is exactly its
danger. What it threatens to institutionalise is a new kind of
politics. This is politics as a vast morality play whose three central
elements are personification, puritanism and punitive imagination.
... When was the last time there was a policy measure that required,
in a manner of speaking, the total mobilisation of society on this
scale, where literally every citizen is being enlisted (or
conscripted, if you prefer) in a policy cause?
... When was the last time literally every citizen is being inducted
into a behaviour change, albeit temporarily?
... But this is exactly the danger, since this move is premised on
dark institutional undercurrents. The personification of policy works
at different levels. To work as a national project, all individuality,
all questions of distributive consequences, have to be effaced. Every
citizen will appear, alternatively, as a patriot or a criminal...
... But most of all, it is evident in the premise of this exercise:
The perfidy of the few can justify imposing hardship on all. We are
all criminals, who through the process of this dialysis, by the mere
act of standing in lines, will come out patriots.
... With personification comes a punitive imagination. The state is
telling you that the honest have nothing to fear. But there is every
sign of unleashing the worst aspects of the Indian state on even
ordinary citizens. The culture of raids on small shopkeepers and
business engaging at best in marginal perfidy of getting rid of
undeclared stocks has been reopened.
... The threat to audit cash injections into Jan Dhan accounts is
silly in the extreme. Even if a few poor are lending their accounts to
launder a lakh or two for commissions, it will probably be a net
redistributive gain.
... The state may want our patriotism. But it still does not trust us.
The state is still the font of virtue that stands above us. It is not
an accident that we are now reintroducing indelible ink marks on those
who try and withdraw even their own money more than once.Thebasic
paternalism and suspicion the state has of citizens will not go away.
That was the philosophical basis of the punitive imagination of the
Indian state, now remobilised under the guise of cleansing.
... There is also a moral puritanism in this: As if the world is
entirely black and white.
... It is manifested in this odd distinction between black and white
money, forgetting the elementary fact that whether money is black or
white depends on where it is at in the cycle of circulation. Hence
they have perpetuated the illusion that we can extract the black,
without hurting the chain of circulation of the white. It is not an
accident that this measure will largely be a wealth tax on those not
sophisticated enough to launder; those who have laundered will go
... I suspect the measure of this that will matter to most people is
not crony capitalism, but whether government officials at mid to lower
levels stop asking for cash bribes.
... But be very wary of the institutional imagination that underlies
it. It will again unleash the state on you, in the name of protecting
your own virtue. What starts as a morality play will end in more

>> Sudden realization : this sort of top-down, over-idealistic, punitive behaviour was predicted about Arvind Kejriwal and AAP during 2014 elections by critics. I see the uncontrolled rage, redirected towards our own brothers and sisters instead of the elites actually causing our problems and strengthened by ideology of war between good and evil that Charles Eisenstein and others have written about.
Demonetization is a foolish step… The poor will suffer the most: Prof Arun Kumar
... As someone gave a very good analogy, if you take out 85 percent
blood from somebody's body and then put five percent into it, what
will happen to that person? He will die. Similarly, when you take out
85 percent liquidity from the economy and slowly replace it by five
percent, then the circulation of income goes down. Footfalls in malls
are falling, charging of mobile phones is declining, the balloon
seller is not able to sell balloons, the small trader is not able to
sell goods. Even the large trader is not able to sell produce because
discretionary expenditure has slowed down. For example, instead of
buying a shirt I decide to buy it next month. So circulation of income
is slowing down, leading to a decrease in demand. When demand slows
down, production slows down, employment drops and investment falls.
And when investment falls it will have long-term consequences.

>> Bright side of #Demonetization ? Gives us a chance to question runaway consumerism and humanity's over-dependence on the state. In rural areas, there is going to be a clear advantage for the traditional organic farmers who save their seeds and grow their own food. With the loss of the illusion of government-backed financial security, resilient and sustainable ways of living will get an opportunity to shine in this storm.

in demand deposits (most commonly checking and savings accounts) and
time deposits (for example, fixed deposits) between the end of June
2016 and September 2016 was the highest in absolute terms since March
... Moreover, the spike occurred in one fortnight--significantly, the
latter fortnight--rather than in one month, RBI data shows. Aggregate
bank deposits declined in the first half of September and then shot up
by Rs 3.55 lakh crore in the last 15 days of the month. This was the
highest fortnightly increase in both absolute and percentage terms in
six years of RBI data.
... All of which is to say that something unusual, and thusfar
unexplained, happened in September 2016. Final data for October 2016
is as yet unavailable.
... This is significant because of the possibility this spike raises
of people being pre-warned of the upcoming demonetisation and deciding
to deposit large amounts of cash before it kicked in. The peak
occurring in the second half of the month, closer to the
demonetisation announcement, makes it particularly confounding.

Agenda driving Modi govt's demonetisation move is clear: activist Bezwada Wilson
... Modi has a list of 2,000 people whose net worth is upward of $1.3
trillion. Why doesn't he go after them? If he wants to catch those
that mint black money and evade taxes, go after them. Surgically
strike them instead of going after the entire population of 120 crore.

How to convert all your black money into white following the #DeMonetization
-> Step 1 - Create a political party, and get registered under
Representation of People's Act, 1951. [Not a difficult task. There are
more than 1000 registered parties who didn't even contest 2014 Lok
Sabha Election, and EC cannot de-register a party]
-> Step 2 - Donate all your black money to your party in parts, each
part should be less than 20,000. You can make infinite such donations,
and say that they came from people.
[According to the RP Act 1951, the political parties are not required
to report (to the Election Commission of India (ECI)) the name of the
individuals or organizations from whom they have received donations of
amount less than Rs.20,000.]
-> Step 3 - Go to bank, deposit all this amount in the party's account.
[No need to pay any income tax. Political parties are 100% exempted
from income tax]
-> Step 4 - Withdraw the amount as and when you need, in 50/100/2000
rupee notes - It is all white.
[Since Political Parties are not under RTI, you can't ask them how
they spent their money]

So my appeal to Shri Narendra Modiji, Arun Jaitleyji, please cover
these loopholes ASAP.
-> Make it mandatory for Political Parties to disclose every rupee
they get as a donation.
-> Make it mandatory for every political party to come under RTI.
It will be minor inconvenience to Political Parties, but they can do
this for greater good of the country.

Association for Democratic Reforms has long been advocating for such
reforms. Time to implement them, and rid this country of #BlackMoney.

>> LOL, and whoa, what an amazing hack! Yes, yes, let's advocate for these to the leaders of parties who have themselves followed these very methods to get in power!
