How the US supports its rich farmers and India ditches its poor farmers

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Insuring the State

Received Rs 40 crore as bribe? Modi shields black money of Ambani, Adani, Essar, Sahara!

If the prime minister wanted to carry out a surgical strike against black money he should have gone against all these – Essar, Ambanis, Adanis, holders of participatory notes, investments coming from tax havens, or against holders of Swiss bank accounts or people with their names in the Panama Papers. He would have got lakhs of crores of black money and that would have been a surgical strike on the people who are known to be holding black money in large amounts.
