Write to me: animated letter


A major research project like this is never the work of anyone alone. The contributions of many different people, in their different ways, have made this possible. I would like to extend my appreciation especially to the following.

Thank God for the wisdom and perseverance that he has been bestowed upon me during this research project, and indeed, throughout my life: "I can do everything through him who give me strength." (Philippians 4: 13) My fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, for their continual support and encouragement throughout this year.

Dr Graham Bradley, for making this research possible. His support, guidance, advice throughout the research project, as well as his pain-staking effort in proof reading the drafts, are greatly appreciated. Indeed, without his guidance, I would not be able to put the topic together. Thanks Graham.

Dr Richard Morris, for encouraging me to undertake the honours programme. The experience has been an interesting and rewarding one.

Of course, this project would not have been possible without the participation of the subjects.

Last but not least, I would like to thank my parents for their unconditional support, both financially and emotionally throughout my degree. In particular, the patience and understanding shown by my mum, dad and sister during the honours year is greatly appreciated. I know, at times, my temper is particularly trying.

This thesis is undertaken as part of the requirements for the award of honours degree in Commerce (Accounting) of the University of NSW, Australia.
