case study 1: water scarcity

Project Description:

are you good in mac economics? can you do this for me?

as part of a discussion about natural resources and scarcity, view the following video clip http://youtu.be/m3d0rggs3oa. (if you are unable to open by clicking the link, copy and paste the link into a new browser window).

there was no law to monitor or control the water coming out of these communities. society entrusts the government to be responsible for overseeing the environmental conditions of the state. in response to this issue, hotly contested house bill 6443 was introduced in the michigan house of representatives. many claimed it was a way for government to control the way well water households consume water, and add a tax to that water. house bill 6443 did not pass.

view house bill 6443 by clicking the following link: http://www.michiganvotes.org/2010-hb-6443

what problem did house bill 6443 try to address?
was it an appropriate solution for the problem?
how might it solve the problem presented?
