Currently, one in four people on earth don't have access to clean drinking water. Many governments lack either the resources or the will to provide this commodity to their citizens. Recently, a number of companies have focussed on this issue as a business opportunity. Often with the involvement of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), these companies have attempted to privatize what many consider a public trust. This video investigates the results of these efforts at privatization in several locations and outlines the consequences.
