Thanks for keeping up the dialogue. Your suggested approach is compelling, but there are enough cases where private capital has not been focused on ensuring access to the poor. The film FLOW challenges the role of companies like SUEZ and Vivendi in providing water and sanitation in developing countries, suggesting that in many cases they have been more detrimental to development. But I guess, there are other examples where companies are attempting to demonstrate their corporate social responsibility, like Coca Cola's commitment to sustainability and protecting/giving back to community watersheds. Still if market mechanisms are applied to water, what happens to those that can't participate in the market?
