Merging Actor-Network Theory with Network Graph Theory for the purposes of Regulatory engagement

Actor-Network Theory

ANT holds that social forces do not exist in themselves, and therefore cannot
be used to explain social phenomena. Instead, strictly empirical analysis
should be undertaken to "describe" rather than "explain" social activity.
Only after this can one introduce the concept of social forces, and only as
an abstract theoretical concept, not something which genuinely exists in the
world. The fundamental aim of ANT is to explore how networks are built or
assembled and maintained to achieve a specific objective.

1. Use an alternative API

One alternative API which is still free is https://exchangeratesapi.io/

It's basically a drop-in replacement for fixer.io and can be used to get all forex rates in json format at
