Bluefield on Tap: A Libertarian Viewpoint on Water (Part I) with Peter L. Nelson, P.E.
Peter L. Nelson, P.E., joins The Water Values Podcast to discuss a novel approach to water and water rights. Peter teamed up with Professor Walter Block to write Water Capitalism: The Case for Privatizing Oceans, Rivers, Lakes, and Aquifers. Peter and I spent nearly 40 minutes discussing privatization, and we barely scratched the surface of the subject! Take a listen to hear a listener-requested topic from a subject-matter expert (Also – if you have questions for the second phase of this interview with Professor Block and Peter, please email me or submit them via the Contact Dave function). This episode also features our regular Bluefield on Tap segment where Reese Tisdale of Bluefield Research joins us to discuss the implications on industrial water users and water utilities of the announced withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord.
