The current Chairman and former CEO of Nestlé, the largest producer of food products in the world, believes that the answer to global water issues is privatization. This statement is on record from the wonderful company that has peddled junk food in the Amazon, has invested money to thwart the labeling of GMO-filled products, has a disturbing health and ethics record for its infant formula, and has deployed a cyber army to monitor Internet criticism and shape discussions in social media.
This is apparently the company we should trust to manage our water, despite the record of large bottling companies like Nestlé having a track record of creating shortages:
Large multinational beverage companies are usually given water-well privileges (and even tax breaks) over citizens because they create jobs, which is apparently more important to the local governments than water rights to other taxpaying citizens. These companies such as Coca Cola and Nestlé (which bottles suburban Michigan well-water and calls it Poland Spring) suck up millions of gallons of water, leaving the public to suffer with any shortages.

Although the focus is on the U.S., this is what I thought when I saw the thread title:

Here is just one example, among many, of his company’s concern for the public thus far:
In the small Pakistani community of Bhati Dilwan, a former village councilor says children are being sickened by filthy water. Who’s to blame? He says it’s bottled water-maker Nestlé, which dug a deep well that is depriving locals of potable water. “The water is not only very dirty, but the water level sank from 100 to 300 to 400 feet,” Dilwan says. (source)​
Why? Because if the community had fresh water piped in, it would deprive Nestlé of its lucrative market in water bottled under the Pure Life brand.
Nestle and other water bottlers (notably Coca Cola which last I heard either privatized or was trying to privatize India's sacred river, the Ganges) are doing this across the world, including the motherland. And across the world, the people are getting the same result as in India.

Amen: there was a guy here in Utah fined a couple of years back for installing a rain water collection system on his roof. It was the state's contention that ALL water in the state belonged to the state, even if it hadn't reached the ground yet.
We need a national boycott of every darn thing 3 days before Christmas, all races all ethnicities! let the corporations know we are tired of the crap! Hit them hard, at the fiscal season they depend on all year, to make their 30% bottom line!

I know this is my first status update since 2020 begin, but all of us agree that 2020 delivered a low-blow
to each of us with the miscellaneous events we have recently seen which brought all of us great displeasure.
