Please read the following case:
Bennett, D. (2014), “Inside Monsanto, America’s Third-Most-Hated Company”, Bloomberg Businessweek, 3 July, (Available at http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-07-03/gmo-factory-monsantos-high-tech-plans-to-feed-the-world)
In light of the case, please respond to the following questions:
Bennett (2014) has termed Monsanto as “one of the most hated corporations in America”? Do you consider it a fair comment? Please justify your response.
Brandon Mitchener, spokesman for Monsanto, has defended the cultivation of GM crops in a recent statement claiming that the opponents of GM crops are ignoring science and putting ‘populism before the facts’ (http://www.rsc.org/chemistryworld/2014/06/eu-plan-member-states-decide-cultivation-gm-crops). Please provide your own opinion after considering the views from both sides.
Use wide research to gather evidence for your perspective. Also look at the Monsanto official website at www.monsanto.com. You must demonstrate your ability to understand and incorporate ideas from academic (i.e., peer-reviewed) journals and other information sources, and show consistent argumentation throughout (not a mere description). Use relevant theories and examples in order to substantiate your arguments.

Response to each question should be between 700 and 800 words;
Total length of the assignment should not exceed 2000 words (excluding references).
Mandatory Referencing Requirements
It is important that the assignment reflects the student’s own understanding of relevant literature. An effective integration of these materials to the discussion is also vital that could primarily be achieved through the use of appropriate referencing.
