Traditional aid dollars can be used to create economic and political change, but development assistance in the economic and governance reform category is different from traditional aid because its goals tend to be structural, and it is specifically given with the intention of making traditional aid simultaneously more useful and less necessary.  Both governance reform and economic policy reform are aimed at increasing the accountability and democratic quality of LDC institutions, as well as making the country more competitive and conducive to market-oriented growth.  This form of assistance is not without its ...

WakeUp 2010: G20 Document Released
Let it be known that We the People of this land commonly known as CANADA, stand in recognition of the true principle that whenever a government abandons the purpose for which we have created it and even becomes hostile towards that which it was once a defender of, it is no longer a fit steward of the political power that is inherent in the people and lent to this government with strict conditions. These conditions are defined in the Canadian Bill of Rights, Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Constitution Act of 1982. Furthermore, to the extent that our government violates these conditions, they nullify their own ... market research, surveys and trends

What do banking crises have to do with consumption
Just three days after returning to Beijing from New York, I had to leave again, this time  to a series of conferences in Torino, Italy, so it is hard to do much writing for my blog, especially since I won’t spend my free time in the hotel when there is so damned much food out here that urgently needs sampling.  Still, I did want to write a hurried note about a topic of conversation that came up a lot while I was in the US and even more here in Italy. For the next several years, as Keynes reminded us in the 1930s, savings is not going to be a virtue for the world economy.  It is more likely to be a vice.  In ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

This arrangement was called "European snake in the tunnel" because the community currencies floated as a group against outside currencies such as the dollar. By 1978, the snake turned into a worm (with only German mark, Belgian franc, Dutch guilder, Danish krone). However, a new effort to achieve monetary cooperation was launched. By March 1979, EC established European Monetary System, ...

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. In times of crisis - for example when the currency is under attack by speculators - the spread between the official and black market rate increases. 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 ...
