Watch this video and see the patterns of Modi's decision leading to and after demonetisation. And you will understand what is being planned is not only for US, it is for India as well.

Let's say the Indian economy is $20 trillion overground and 50% of that is underground, IOW $10 trillion. Total is $30 trillion. As a consequence of demonetisation, half of underground economy is wiped out leaving $5 trillion. The other $5 trillion becomes over ground. So total economy is now NOMINA...
