1993 SNA Update Information - AEG recommendations for issue:
Valuation of water

Issue description
Issue description in [English] | [French] | [Russian] | [Spanish]
When water is no longer free, how should the charge for it be treated? Although a large share of the charges represents distribution costs, is there an element that should be treated as giving rise to rent in a similar way to land or mineral resources? How should the use of water as a sink for waste be treated?
