TUESDAY 2PM CENTRAL: Protest after Ferguson / The abortion fight now
Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week
Andreaballestero10042019

Water is tightly connected with all of the other things we take as separate - the economy, the law, the institutions we have in our society to allow us to live collectively, the idea that we should pay for some things and should not pay for other things, the idea that you should go to court if you have a problem with a neighbor rather than solving your problems in some other way - water is all of that.

Anthropologist Andrea Ballestero examines the future of water on planet Earth - as a human right to be sustained and protected for the common good, or as a commodity subject to the demands and crises of capitalism - and the social and political processes behind each process.

Andrea is author of the book A Future History of Water from Duke University Press.
