David Zetland, author of Aguanomics
, will be appearing on the Steven Spierer Radio Show
, 4th of February 2012 to discuss the economics of water.
Here's more about Aguanomics
"Water is the most precious commodity there is, and yet, most of us don't think much about it. It's availability in seemingly unlimited quantities, and at almost no cost, just by turning on the tap. But the age of water abundance is coming to an end, as David Zetland explains.
Unlike many authors in this genre, Zetland does not try to terrify us with apocalyptic scenarios of water wars and mass starvation. Rather, writing in an engaging and informal style, he gives us a realistic assessment of the impending age of water scarcity and how we will need to change our ways to deal with it.
Read this book - you'll never think the same way about water again!" John Quiggin, Australian Research Council Federation Fellow, University of QueenslandSteven's programme goes out at 10AM PDT/1PM EDT. For those of you not on Pacific Time, (which is quite a lot of the people who come to this site) the show will be available to download afterwards.
