The California Litter Reduction and Recycling Program & How to Write a Good Introduction in an Academic Paper

    本次能源经济学研讨会邀请到加州大学伯克利分校农业与资源经济学Peter Berck教授,环境发展讨论论文系列主编Cyndi Spindell Berck做学术演讲。

    The California bottle and can deposit recycling system is unique in its use of a state fund to partially finance recycling centers and its requirement for supermarkets to have convenient recycling, a recycling center in the parking lot.  This paper reports on consumer`s views of convenience in recycling as well as on the likely effects of changing the deposit and the number of centers.
