Publisher's Summary

This case analysis is about a company called Monsanto and the belief that their use of genetically modified goods is, allegedly, doing more harm than good. Monsanto has responded to opposition by indicating that newly developed, genetically modified food is the only way to combat world hunger. The company believes that this opposition to genetically modified food will soon pass.

This essay serves as a great example of how to perform a case study; it also tackles myths and business practices surrounding Monsanto.

I hold an associate's degree in business management and a bachelor's degree in business administration, having graduated cum laude.

GMO's are bad? Feed the World with them!!

Clinger writes and narrates a paper about the Monsanto company, and how they, in spite of evidence saying that GMO's are bad, intends on using GMO's to feed the world and stave off world hunger and famine. It becomes clear that Clinger is on the side of Monsanto. Whether he is right or wrong I cannot say, the choice is up to you to decide. Either way, you can listen in and come to a decision in about ten minutes. I was not familiar with this company, and I am still not decided, but the book has made me decide to look into more.

As usual, Clinger is clear and clean in his narration. He delivers his point without any questions.

Wow I didn't know this about Monsanto!

Would you listen to Monsanto Case Analysis again? Why?

I would because it's important that this information about Monsanto gets heard and then shared to others.

What did you like best about this story?

How truthful and revealing it was.

10 min opinion without substance

What disappointed you about Monsanto Case Analysis?

It has no objective data. It has no novel idea. In a nutshell Monsanto is a "good" "ethical" company that failed to make better advertisement of its awesome goofs I mean goods. Please give me my money back!

What could Trevor Clinger have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Little. He is already firmly for Monsanto so there is no objectivity.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Trevor Clinger?

No comment

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Monsanto Case Analysis?

This book should not be for sale.

Any additional comments?

Monsanto rules our food and I am surprised that the only book available is this weak audio book. In paper you have Marie Monique Robin, "The World According to Monsanto" for example. Is this lack of audio titles by design?

An educational take on Monsanto

The author too a very intelligent approach in analyzing the company Monsanto and all of it's actions that has carried out in the past. This is a great scholarly reference, and it had superb organization and detail. Highly recommend!

Not particularly insightful

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Somewhat monotonous, and failure to clearly recite the history of atrocities that Monsanto deemed "safe".

Would you ever listen to anything by Trevor Clinger again?

possibly

Would you be willing to try another one of Trevor Clinger’s performances?

depends on the subject matter

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Monsanto Case Analysis?

Candidly, I would have much preferred a decade by decade recital of Monsanto products that were anything, but safe. Then a more scientific approach to discussing GMO's and then a discussion about the lawsuits against farmer's who had there crops "contaminated" by Monsanto seeds (thereby losing their "organic crop" designation) and then being sued by Monsanto just because the seeds desalinated to their farms from nearby farms.
