Summary

How do tax havens and syndicates running shell companies help fraudsters escape the long arm of the law? 
How does the ambiguity of valuation in the start-up ecosystem increase its vulnerability to corporate fraud?  
How are manufacturers and exporters from China exploiting India's Free Trade Area (FTA) with other countries to dump goods at artificially low prices in the Indian market?  
What challenges does the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) of China pose for regulators of India?  
Why do people fall for Ponzi and pyramid schemes again and again? 
  
Serious frauds affect society and economy in damaging ways, belittling the common man's trust in the system. Yet, barely do we understand how these affect our lives. A first-of-its-kind, The Great Indian Fraud reveals how all such frauds result from the manipulation of complex financial transactions, involving simple mathematics and tricks, to deceive regulators, enforcers, business partners and customers. 
Drawing on his experience in the fields of forensic audit and financial investigation, author Smarak Swain explains the modus operandi behind some of the most notorious cases of fraud-Haridas Mundhra, Jayanti Dharma Teja, Harshad Mehta, Ketan Parekh, Hasan Ali Khan, B. Ramalinga Raju, Nirav Modi, Vijay Mallya, Nirmal Singh Bhangoo and many more-narrating the rise and fall of the greatest fraudsters of our times. 
 
Informative and skilfully narrated, The Great Indian Fraud is a must-read to understand how frauds happen, how law enforcement agencies handle crises, the sectors that witness maximum frauds as well as the emerging sectors that are at high risk.

    How and Why Nations Fail

    In a world forged by the shards of history, it is not to be expected that countries court the very things that have proven to be the grey cardinals fostering the underdevelopment, backwardness, and failures that mark them and others. Time and again these things perpetrate the carnage, tumult, and catastrophes that have kept countries chained, making them hemorrhage God-given potential, with some managing to attain only a modicum of progress in areas they would have been no less of the global best.
     
    These harbingers of failure and backwardness are not restricted to any one country, they are to be found in just about every geographical expression known to mankind as a “nation”. They differ only to the degree to which they are pronounced and in the reach within which their effects are palpable.
     
    It is my unreserved intent in this volume to disambiguate these agents of national failure down to the metal, to the end that such knowledge may prove useful in whatever noble scope it is needed.
