According to his estimate, black money which constituted 9. Further, it is generated at the rate of Rs. It failed to prove anything at all, despite months of investigation. Black Money relies too much on quickly-drawn extremes of character -- so many of them that Macdonald has to spread his attention too thin. Sometimes the sketch is right to the point, beginning with his client, the "middle-aged boy" Peter, who turns to food to fill the voids in his life: Under his carefully tailored Ivy League suit he wore a layer of fat like easily penetrable armor.

We have seen why. But with so many characters, and Archer almost constantly on the move -- he even flies to Las Vegas, for a brief look -- the story never settles in comfortably enough around any of the characters -- a shame, because quite a few of them have stories that could bear much fuller telling. It was not explained why when high currency notes were being demonetised — as they were the choice of currency for black income generators to hoard — currency of even higher denomination the Rs note was being introduced. While the movement itself was mostly apolitical and civil-society-driven, Modi was its biggest political beneficiary as he unleashed the most expensive campaign India had ever seen: chartered aircraft, helicopters, holograms, media campaigns, unabashed social media and Internet strategies and the like.

The victim is persuaded that he must buy the chemical to wash the notes, and of course the chemical cleaning fluid is "very expensive". Gambling debts -- and it wasn't always cash that was involved in settling them -- as well as both Las Vegas and Panamanian money laundering also come into play, but with several of the main figures operating under different names at different times, it takes Archer a while to disentangle the whole mess. It was hardly surprising then that, on his first day in office, Modi announced the setting up of that SIT. The nanny was such a fervent Nazi that when France fell inshe resigned and returned to Germany. The definition we arrive at of the black economy is: The black economy consists of all the activities in which black incomes are generated and black incomes are factor incomes, property incomes, not reported to direct tax authorities.

Tax Havens While at least some of the black money generated in India comes back into the country via various forms of round-tripping, most of it is first goes offshore. It helps keep the public confused about the real nature of the power structure. If it is extended to them, it would make the politician and the executive accountable and their functioning transparent so that, unlike at present, they cannot subvert the law deliberately.

The success of an inclusive development strategy critically depends on the capacity of our society to root out the evil of corruption and black money from its very foundations.

It's attitude and observation in the the quick-beat, dialogue-heavy novel that make it such an enjoyable -- and, at some points, excellent -- read.

What has not worked: Voluntary Disclosure Schemes Even though tax rates and controls have been drastically reduced in India, the black economy has continued to flourish. Credit: The Wire Post marketisation phase Just as with gold imports, all across the economic spectrum criminal activity increased.

Furthermore, the money has all been stained black or another color to avoid detection by customs. But it still feels a bit cobbled together -- so many characters and so many layers to the plot and connections and some of the characters making for a jumble that fits together well enough, but could have done with lingering over or expanding on many of its details.

This done, the conman proceeds to wash the banknote in the chemical, performing a sleight of handsubstituting a real note which is washed. Governance failure and corruption in the system affect the poor disproportionately.

Thus, since demonetisation was announced, unemployment has risen, investment has fallen, banks are facing difficulties and the crisis in agriculture has been aggravated in spite of a good monsoon. A trunk full of black money? A swift, beautiful, and chastening book, The Color of Money reminds us, yet again, that black poverty is not really an economic problem, but rather a political problem requiring political solutions.

The initial message may read something like this: I am a lawyer in Belgium and I am charged with seeking the rightful heir to certain assets which were deposited many years ago with a security company here in Brussels by a man who died a few years ago.

It was "the longest I have held a book in mind before I wrote it". In spite of the varied methods used, it is not possible to estimate the magnitude of black money in a society, even though it is described as a world-wide phenomenon.

Its legitimate source is that the income-earners do not reveal their whole income for tax purposes. Still, Archer digs around, and it doesn't take long for him to figure out that a lot of things aren't quite what they seem. The basic-seeming case escalates when two of the main actors wind up murdered -- and Archer is convinced there's a connection with Ginny's father's death, which looks increasingly suspicious to him.
