Podcast: What the Three Waters reforms will mean for councils

The Government has announced they will confiscate councils’ three water assets, despite widespread opposition from mayors, councillors, and ratepayers.

Ben Craven sits down with Oliver Hartwich, Matt Burgess and Eric Crampton to discuss what the proposals will mean for councils; the winners and losers; and why centralised control of water assets is not the answer to local water issues.
