On today's show: Two stories from Kenya.

1. Can Economics Save The African Rhino? Poachers kill rhinos for their horns. Some economists think legalizing the horns could save the rhinos.

2. A Surprising Barrier To Clean Water: Human Nature. Getting clean water to people in the developing world isn't just an engineering problem.

Note: Both stories previously aired on the radio. Music: Michael Kiwanuka's "Tell Me a Tale." Find us: Twitter/ Facebook/Spotify/ Tumblr. Download the Planet Money iPhone App.
