Priming the Invisible Pump
Terry L. Anderson and Pamela S. Snyder
Since Water Crisis: Ending the Policy Drought was first published in 1983, water markets have
been transformed from the theoretical to the practical. Today, water marketing is being used to improve
both water allocation and water quality.
This book details the enormous number of advances in water markets that have occurred in the past
decade. It especially emphasizes the use of water markets for instream flows, ground water, and pollution.
It also discusses the use of water markets in an international context.
