Genetic engineering is dead

It’s official. After the demise of artisan (recorded in this week’s newsletter), I now pronounce “genetic engineering” officially dead. It’s been on the way out for decades, as people sought to blunt it’s impact by attaching it to beer, bread etc. But this announcement, in the New Food Economy newsletter, is the final nail in the coffin.

You tell me what that means.
