If Water Rates Rise, You Should Privatize!
The title of this blog entry should be spoken as if you were Johnny Cochran (R.I.P.).
The Post-Dispatch is reporting that the city of St. Louis is raising its water rates (link via Combest). Now, I have no criticism of the rate increase — things cost what they cost, and government utilities have historically underpriced their products. If rates are rising, though, it should be a good time to consider the benefits of privatizing the St. Louis water system. C’mon, St. Louis. It’s good for what ails you.
