(See in situ)


Fresh water wasn't the point.

Fresh water wasn't the point. The point was "how does limiting people's resources help economic recovery?" It's a general question, put what ever labels you like on it.

How does a place where water is scarce benefit from having their water imports restricted?

How does a place where food is scarce benefit from having their food imports restricted?

How does a place where steel is scarce benefit from having their steel imports restricted?

How does a place where cotton is scarce benefit from having their cotton imports restricted?

How does a place where rubik's cubes is scarce benefit from having their rubik's cubes imports restricted?

HOW DOES ONE BENEFIT FROM HAVING A SCARCE RESOURCE RESTRICTED EVEN FURTHER?!?!?!
