Water [NYT]
The Times begins a 4-part series on water privatization with this dispatch from Argentina:
The water Suez brought to the neighborhood produced so much runoff that the water table rose, causing streams of sewage to trickle along curbs and flood cellars, even in the driest of seasons. In summer, the stench is overwhelming.... Suez executives blame Argentina's financial crisis instead of nature.
See, if you don't "maintain a close policy dialogue with the IMF," you'll end up knee-deep in shit.
And you'll deserve it.
