My third finished book: The Great Hysteria and The Broken State

My two previous books (that I’ve actually finished – there are another 10-15 underway at different stages of completion) are:

Breaking Free of Nehru, Anthem Press (2008) – now available free of cost to download (well over 50,000 copies have been downloaded to date). Try it out. It comes highly recommended by Gurcharan Das, former MD of Proctor and Gamble Worldwide and one of India’s most well-known authors.

Seeing the Invisible, Self-published (2018) – with a commitment to keep it free for download for ever. It is a book on economics for children up to age 100. Try it out as well and share it with all the young people you can. It comes highly recommended by Nobel Prize winner Vernon Smith. (Over 2000 copies have been downloaded to date and 1000 copies are being printed for distribution to schools in Assam, India.)

And now, in just 10 days of work, a third one: The Great Hysteria and the Broken State, Connor Court Publishing (2020). This one is not free (nor was BFN, initially).

My radio/ TV/ Youtube/ Instagram interviews against covid lockdowns

Here’s a list to help me keep track. I’m listing these on the day I gave the interview, not when it was published. NOTE: Most of these are linked here:

Just for context, some prior dates as well:

Resigned: 9 September 2020

Handed over laptop and pass to DTF: 10 September 2020

Participated for the first time in any protest: 13 September 2020 – put out my boots

Wrote to the Treasurer Tim Pallas – published later on Catallaxy files: 13 September 2020

Second article that I wrote got published in AFR: 16 September 2020 [Screenshot]

The first article that I wrote – I then published on Catallaxy files: 21 September 2020


  1. Ausbiz (these people want me to BUY the interview! Absurd. Their email to me).  – They had the audacity to email me on 24 November 2020 for another interview – I’ve transferred their email to my junk folder.
  2. SBS News (Hindi)
  3. Channel 7 – Said they would feature on 27 September 2020 and I was informed they are working on a different date. But now I know they LIED. Their editors actively censored the interview. See my Tweet. I WILL NEVER AGAIN BE DOING ANY CHANNEL 7 INTERVIEW.
