Waste Effects – Table of Contents

As a quick way of navigating this site I thought it might be helpful to upload my table contents and provide links. These are not verbatim extracts but versions or papers that have a close correspondence to the final text. And there are lots of other incidental posts on this site, which closely relate to the subject of waste, that have not made it into the final draft. Now that this project is almost complete, the work in progress found here will be left up as a record of the various iterations it went through before being handed in, together, as my PhD thesis.

  1. Hi Bradley, glad you like it, many thanks for your words of support. I hadn’t considered putting the whole Ph.D up as a PDF. I might well do that, after I’ve absorbed the comments of my examiners.

  2. Thanks for revealing your ideas on this blog.
    Additionally, a delusion regarding the banking companies intentions when
    talking about property foreclosure is that the lender will not getreceive my installments.
    There is a degree of time in which the bank will require
    payments every now and then. If you are also deep inside the
    hole, they will commonly demand that you pay that payment in whole.
    However, i am not saying that they will not
    take any sort of repayments at all. If you and the lender
    can have the ability to work anything out, the foreclosure method
    may stop. However, in the event you continue to miss payments wih the
    new system, the property foreclosure process can just pick up from where
    it was left off.
