"Comparing Regulatory Oversight Bodies Across the Atlantic: The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the US and the Impact Assessment Board in the EU" by Jonathan B. Wiener (Duke) and Alberto Alemanno (HEC Paris). Abstract: ‘Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?’ asked the Roman poet Juvenal – ‘who will watch the watchers, who will guard the guardians?’ As legislative and regulatory processes around the globe progressively put greater emphasis on impact assessment and accountability, we ask: who oversees the regulators? Although regulation can often be necessary and beneficial, it can also impose its own costs. As a result, ...
(OAH). The central theme of the book is that guns were uncommon during peacetime in early America; that they were of little use and that the more widespread use and ownership of guns dates from the time of the Civil War and is the result of advances in manufacturing with the consequent reduction in price and improvement in quality and utility. From that narrative emerges the controversial theme and the subject of most of the debate, which is that the common belief that America's modern " gun culture " has its roots in America's colonial and frontier era is a myth, with little basis in historical fact. ...

Question: Currency exchange controls and devaluations
Economies with foreign exchange controls tend to develop, in parallel to the official exchange rate, a black or parallel currency market.

What is the historical record of the effect of a devaluation of the official exchange rate on the (parallel) black market exchange rate? Does the official to black rate spread decrease? Does it remain the same? Does it increase? What is the rational behind the dynamic of the change of the official to black exchange rate? Please ...
