Black Money is the most controversial topic in India. It was part of BJP Manifesto to bring out the black money which are reportedly stashed abroad to the extent of US$ 400 Bln to 500 Billions. There are no basis on which such estimates have been made. Pitifully, such wild numbers are accepted by the politicians like brilliant Prime Minister Modi without analyzing the truth. In this major article, the author Kalidasji (Real name is Anil Selarka) quashes every wrong impression piece by piece with great insightful mind. The author skillfully discusses the sources of black money, its origin, current locations and whether they can be extracted with any success. Howsoever Mr. Modi will be as person or as Prime Minister, he can not do anything unless his coffers are full. They can be filled only by extracting black money and tax derived therefrom. The Author also dashes the conception that most black money is stashed abroad with very logical arguments and convincing mathematical truth. This is such hot topic that it must be debated across the country and beyond.

There is every possibility that next week beginning from 24-Jan-2010 may see sharp plunge in the stocks and bond prices on the back of 5% plunge in Wall Street last week, notably over 200 points loss on Friday. The stocks were defying correction in spite of all negative data feeding through the market for over several months. The President Obama’s plan for banking overhaul has ignited this correction.

The Author’s prediction in December that the correction may start in third week of January and take almost 80% money out of the market on or before 21 Jan 2010 came out bang on target. In this article, the author forewarns the crash and also provide tools to help the investors. Read more….
