I have a passion for Easter Island. Being a province of Chile, which is a middle developed economy, it doesnt qualifiy for tax deductible development aid funding. It has all the same environmental problems faced by any Island, but it cannot actually export its recyclable waste anywhere because the only port they can export to is Chile. Chile won't take waste from Easter Island fearing it will import dengue fever. Click on the links to read journal and other publications I have authored and co authored.
