Read aguanomics for the world’s best analysis of the politics and economics of water

  1. “The contemporary shadow of the Scramble for Africa”, i.e., colonialism has enduring, negative impacts
  2. Competition! “From April most businesses and organisations in England will be able to choose which company will supply their retail water services”
  3. What Do Economists Actually Know?, few useful details but many promising ideas
  4. “In one generation, the Internet went from opening up new free markets to creating a series of Fake Markets that exploit society, without most media or politicians even noticing.”
  5. Using serious games to manage water in Kenya
  6. The US has a lot of money, but it does not look like a developed country.” These data don’t lie.
  7. Dams were a bad idea when overbuilt. Now we have to deal with their collapse.
  8. A really interesting conversation with Malcolm Gladwell
  9. A Dutch couple sold all their possessions and jumped into a VW van to see the world
  10. UC Berkeley will remove 20,000 lectures from public access due to a complaint that they violated the rights of deaf people because they lacked subtitles as it was cheaper to remove them than add subtitles (curiously, it seems that computer generated subtitles may be banned by new video standards). Luckily, a start up has copied the archive with a promise to host them for free. Even more luckily, my UC Berkeley lectures are still up — and they have subtitles!
  11. An analysis of how the Clean Water Act failed Flint and will fail the rest of the US — assuming Trump doesn’t destroy the EPA!
  12. Bad regulation on water pollution is worse than none at all
  13. Join the International Summer School on Regulation of Local Public Services (Sep, Turin, Italy)
