Fascinating and Educative
29 November 2018
Meera’s book is a revelation for those who have been mystified by the govt.’s Demonetisation decision and what it was for and what it did achieve.
I read the Big Reverse like a thriller, though the subject is financial policy, she has made it accessible to the common reader. It’s well documented and exposes one lie after another of the govt. A very good read overall.
Meera Sanyal’s Big Reverse blows open the pile of lies which made up Demonetisation from start to finish. As an exposé it is there up with the best. Clinical, sticking to documented facts, and calling upon the wisdom of those who knew better and know better. Very enjoyable.
This is a must-read for anyone interested in public policy, abuse of power, the fall-out of poor decision-making etc. Meera takes different strands of demonetisation which was imposed on an unsuspecting and unready country and weaves together a gripping story of how it unfolded and hit almost everyone in its way, except the supposed targets, the rich!
