The End of Abundance
Golf vs farming, who deserves more water?
In connection with my previous post on a new movie called “bottle life” (the documentary talks about the dilemma wheater or not to charge for water and how, or is water a commodity or a resource?) here is a book to expand the discussion on the water market.
Do you know that the sport of golf generates much more money in the USA by using a fraction of water used by farmers! The ratio is 1 to 16 for each liter of water used!
So, the book is a good way to look at the problem with new or different eyes:
Here is what the book is all about:
In this book, David Zetland describes the impact of scarcity on our many water uses, how the institutions of abundance fail in scarcity, and how economic ideas and tools can help us direct water to its highest and best use. Written for non-academic readers, The End of Abundance provides examples, insights and ideas to anyone interested in the management of our most precious resource.
