The Great Depression

  • Benjamin Roth: The Great Depression: A Diary

    Benjamin Roth: The Great Depression: A Diary
    It's all here, times change people don't -the endless govt programs that fail to stimulate the private sector -the ups and downs of the economy, the veterans pension stimulates just as the housing credit did, until of course the money runs out -Roth is a attorney in Youngstown Ohio who kept a diary regarding the economy from 1930 until WW II breaks out, he is objective, candid, and forthright which is more than we get from Washington DC now or then highly recommended

Ok here are the problems, it is a utility and that means that nearly 100% of the stakeholders (99.99 %) are the public. If a water company were to start to change the rate on a customers water on a day to day (or even month to month) basis there will be blood in that water and it will be speculators, investors, and firms that offer this product. While water is a considered a finite resource in terms of usable amounts it is in fact an infinite resource with just the slightest care. Some places have fixed rates for different usages, just as some places have different rates for energy consumption depending on day or amount.

My point is simple there is no way that SAWS can or will try to tell ten thousand public assistance people "oh well on thursday at 2 pm your rate was $2.00 a gallon till 4 pm" after the fact. It is possible and even likely that just as the energy sector changes your rate depending on the season an ever constantly shifting rate change won't happen. However like the energy sector options and the like could be huge as long as the impact on the public is limited to small adjustments over a great deal of time.
