How Will the Monsanto-Bayer Merger Affect Our Future?

Wu-Tso Lin
Abstract—This paper will highlight the most pressing issues in food ethics that we face globally. Using the recent Bayer-Monsanto merger as a case study we will identify the tools that ethics might helpfully bring to the table. We will explore the concept of “food justice” and how it can contribute to policy discussions and how it relates to the merger. When we investigate the sources of food or the food manufacturing methods we enter the philosophical world of “food ethics” in our understanding of the various issues. We will look ahead to the time when the merger is completed and discuss the potential dilemmas that will arise.

Index Terms—Bayer, monsanto, food ethics, food justice, merger.
