Changes in the environment, population, and industry have created water scarcity in some areas. Terry L. Anderson the President of The Property and Environment Research Center and Gretchen W. McClain the CEO of Xylem discuss how society can meet these water challenges.
Authors Reed Watson and Brandon Scarborough briefly describe and give examples of how water markets can not only provide water where it is needed most, but avoid the acrimony of past water disputes.

To keep the water running in LasVegas, recognize scarcity and let water rates rise-- double or even triple. Encourage homeowners to trade water rights. Let the market determine how much water people use, not the water police.

Where water markets are being allowed to work, prices reflect scarcity and trades provide incentives to conserve.
