Description of "That Didn't Work Out"

On November 8, 2016, the government of India took a step which will be etched in the history of India. Unfortunately, it'll be for the wrong reasons. This book is an attempt to look at every argument that is raised around demonetisation, from an impartial standpoint, and figure out the gravity of the effect demonetisation has had, and will continue to have on India. The book is organised in the form of chapters specifically dedicated to the arguments made by politicians, journalists, economists and experts, political party supporters and the unbiased electorate.

This book is also an attempt to do the job of a true and just force of opposition, an essential element in any democracy. It is the job of the opposition to not only hold the government accountable for its mismanagement, wrong doings or poor performance, but also to suggest alternative policies which could benefit the electorate. Unlike the opposition parties of India, who simply prefer to disrupt the parliament, play the usual communal politics, and propagate ill established conspiracy theories, this book is the answer to the government's statement that there is "no issue to debate on, so the opposition is simply stalling the parliamentary process".

This book is the answer to that complaint of the government. This arguments stated in this book are fact driven thesis and not rhetoric driven propaganda.
