Oil and Water

The second guest post at Freakanomics by David Zetland– which concludes surprisingly that:

Bottom Line: We don’t have a gas shortage because gas is expensive; we will have a water shortage until water is expensive. Want more water? Pay for it.

Zetland’s post Anti-Capitalists get’s right down to the basic elements of public vs private – demonstrating how easy it is for a sincere “organizer” to misunderstand how we can organize private companies to efficiently deilver the public goods we all want.
