California's Water Problems: Why a Comprehensive Solution Makes Sense
Simon, Leo and Susan Stratton.
California's Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta faces a very uncertain future. Policymakers and stakeholders in the state are actively negotiating how to improve the health of the Delta ecosystem while protecting agricultural and urban water supplies. Using a bargaining-theoretic framework, we argue that failing to include aboveground storage and conveyance expenditures in the negotiations may distort the apparent trade-offs between other options.
