In April 2003, Liquid Assets was shortlisted for the Donner Prize, the award for the best book on Canadian public policy. The shortlist was drawn from a field of 75 submissions examining a range of policy issues.
Grant Reuber, Chairman of the Donner Prize jury, noted, “In an accessible manner, this year’s nominees challenge our understanding of the Canadian status quo and explore the options we have in addressing difficult and controversial issues that affect us all.”
“Liquid Assets is a first-class book on an important subject. Intriguing, well-written and meticulously documented, this book provides an authoritative and readable study of the privatization of water and waste-water facilities around the world.” – Donner Prize jury
