ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the role of British regulators in driving sustainable growth in the utility industry. He argues that British economic regulators are pioneers of sustainable development. He notes that Northern Ireland is not fundamentally different from the rest of Great Britain, where public support for water capitalism is only skin-deep. He stresses that the challenge of sustainable development is to adopt it as a mental framework.
