November 8 marked the one-year anniversary of the great Indian demonetization move. India's demonetization move should not be looked in isolation. One can find instances of demonetization elsewhere as well. In October 2014, Singapore got rid of its1000 dollar note; in 2011 Canada stopped issuing 1000 dollar notes, and in 2013 Sweden did the same with the1000-Krona note, all as a way to stop financial crimes.

As the winter sets in, vegetable prices instead of coming down are shooting up. According to data released by the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, inflation increased rapidly from 3.92 per cent in September to 7.47 per cent in October, mainly because of rise in food prices. The reason is known to all – manipulation by the intermediaries who buy vegetables from the peasants and bring to the urban markets for sale. The remedy is also known – taking deterrent action under the provisions of the Essential Commodities Act.
