How the Market Can Drive Water Conservation in Rivers


Is it possible to please two groups who are traditionally at odds with each other- conservationists and people who use the land and rivers for their income?  Rob Harmon, an expert on energy and natural resources policy, explained in a video on Ted Talks how the market can drive conservation and create a win-win situation for folks in the agricultural community who hold senior water rights to degraded streams and rivers in the United States, as well as for the companies who use the natural resources to create products.  It's a solution that is good for the environment, good for the agricultural community, and good for companies.
