Unified by their desire to produce innovative solutions to the problem of allocating fresh water, the prominent contributors to Water Marketing argue that government regulations inadvertently encourage the waste of our most vital resource by preventing the evolution of property rights to water marketing. This volume offers insightful public policy alternatives to water marketing that will stimulate a rethinking of traditional policies.
