Finished Writing
Allowing for the observation that no writing is ever finished, these bits and pieces have found their way or are still finding their way into various publications. There is a fair bit to put up so if there is a piece that you were particularly after let me know. The versions I put up here are pre-publication, working paper versions. They will be added in no particular order. I have other bits of writing I've calledscribblesthat might be of interest.
