Andrea Ucini / Water Capitalism

View Portfolio

Andrea Ucini looks at the growing issue of water capitalism and privatizing oceans, rivers, lakes and aquifers for profit in his illustration of a man diving into a “private” pool surrounded by ocean.

Though water covers 75 percent of the earth’s surface, it accounts for less that 1 percent of the world’s GDP.  The opportunity for profiting from the ownership of water seems irresistible to those who look to profit from the earth’s resources as they seek new ways to make money from things no one has a right to own.
