Bayer Buys Monsanto

Bay­er, a for­mer mem­ber of the I.G. Far­ben car­tel and a key ele­ment of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work has pur­chased Mon­san­to with a $66 bil­lion cash bid, the largest cor­po­rate cash deal in his­to­ry, with Sul­li­van & Cromwell hav­ing served as the fir­m’s advis­er. In FTR #912, we not­ed the promi­nent entry of Bor­mann firms into the food indus­try and spec­u­lat­ed about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of intro­duc­ing genet­i­cal­ly-engi­neered bina­ry pathogens into food­stuffs.
