BEST: What is Aguanomics?: Philosophy, book suggestions, etc. Also read about Elasticity of Demand.
USAID Harms The Poor: I'm shocked, shocked! WaterAid, OTOH, does not. Why? They do what locals want.
BEST: Was Julian Simon Right about the Wrong Thing?: A guest post at env-econ where I clarify that the real constraint is the environment, not natural resources. Also see this post on Malthus and Carbon Trading.

Also see Water is Valuable! on how IID is offering its farmers too little money for the water it sells to cities for 3x the price and Fat Cats or Skinny Cats? on how water managers serve themselves instead of their constituents.
