Water for Sale: How Business and the Market Can Resolve the World's Water Crisis

Excerpt

When I told friends and colleagues I was writing a book about water, and the role of markets and the private sector in water distribution in developing countries, most of them frowned and asked why. True, at first this seems to be a very technical and narrow subject. But on closer inspection, one comes to realize that there is a global drama taking place. It is not primarily about water technology; it is about more than a billion people around the world lacking access to clean and safe water, which causes 12 million deaths a year. Therefore, this became more a mission of life and death than yet another boring technical study. It is my hope that readers will find the book as important as I think the topic is.
