The paper examines "Lords of the Harvest" that explores whether genetically engineered foods are safe to eat and whether they harm the environment. The paper discusses the Monsanto company and their commercial strategy that would get their items not just on the shelves of stores but into the consciousness of consumers. The paper then compares Jason Salfi's Comet Skateboard company and its model with Monsanto's business model. The paper shows how while the two organizations are very much unalike, they both tried something new in business.
