Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, November 19, 2013 9:36 AM

Is the scare tactic about the global insufficiency of water akin to that of global food? If so the mega corporations who deal in these commodities can put quite a fear in the world's population. We all know what happens when people react out of fear.

                               THE STORY:  "BOTTLED LIFE":

To be able to sell and make money from water, you first have to own it. While the world's population continues to grow at an alarming rate, water is becoming an increasingly scarce commodity. The Swiss film "Bottled Life" documents the booming business with bottled water, by focusing on the global leader in this lucrative multi-billion dollar market – namely, the Nestlé corporation in Switzerland. Nestlé currently controls more than 70% of the world's bottled water brands, a company intent on amassing resource rights worldwide, with the aim of dominating the global water market of the future.... http://www.bottledlifefilm.com/index.php/the-story.html

Nestle controlling 70% of the global bottled water market? Where is my chocolate water?

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, February 5, 4:09 AM

It is crucial to know what big business is doing and is planning to do with our drinking water.

Efren Gallardo's curator insight, March 4, 11:03 AM

in order to sell and make money off from water, you have to own water. since the population is growing water is becoming scarce. the nestle corporation owns more than 70% of bottled water brand.
