The political-economy of water (and other diversions)
I'd love to see a post on what you think went wrong in Cochabamba and how to safeguard against similar problems in privatizing US water resources.
@B&J -- Start with this: http://aguanomics.com/2009/02/cochabamba-update.htmlThe main problem (as I've said MANY times) is monopoly, not private vs public. Good oversight and competition for service contracts are key means to avoid abuse of monopoly power.
