Flashback: 17 -- 23 Feb 2012

A year later and still worth reading...

Cheap talk or walk the walk? One year ago, I asked water brokers in Arizona if they wanted to cooperate to improve water trading policies. They preferred to act individually (to make more money on fees from illiquid trades), and Arizona's water market still isn't.

Why we need more economics in water policies -- DEFINITELY still true. Applied, for example, to News flash: Don't worry about drought...

Gleick and Heartland -- Peter Gleick lied to get data from an "evil" institute and was condemned. He took a vacation and is now back to business as usual (without lies, I hope). Has the event hurt or helped him?

Predictably Irrational -- the review -- all economists humans should read this.
