Press editorial: Can we put a price on water?

OPINION: If the reaction to the plan to export bottled water from an Ashburton aquifer is any guide, Kiwis are likely to be outraged at the proposal to export up to 800 million litres a month of pristine South Westland water. Why we get upset over this giveaway of what we see as a free public asset and not others is more puzzling. See editorial.
