Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw and Black Swan author Nassim Nicholas Taleb in Twitter spat over GM benefits – Economic Times

As the conversation veered towards innuendoes and name calling, the real issue about the benefitsrisks of GM crops went off the track. The main story which triggered this debate was about a rigorous meta analysis and one of the largest reviews on GM crops, which said that technology has wide-spread benefits, including increased crop yields, reduced pesticide use and profit for farmers.

Taleb’s argument was that Shaw was confusing risk analysis and benefits, and was trying to hide the other impacts of GM technology.
