Critics of biotechnology, in contrast, reject Malthusian arguments that in their view
no longer serve to support the cause of environmentalism, if they ever did. These
critics identify the cause of hunger in distribution, not production. If the problem
lies with social, political, and economic relationships – in injustice rather than in
scarcity – then biotechnology is not relevant. Sagoff's ascription of Malthusian / '
limits to growth' motivations to greens across the board may be rather too
absolute; ...

In the absence of adjustment policies, such as industrial, regional and social
policies, integration may impose costs on some countries, rather than give them
benefits. Therefore, cooperation among countries regarding the distribution of
gains and losses is a necessary condition for successful integration. In any case,
integration alters the geography of production in participating countries, which
must modify, and even abandon, the established domestic monopolies and
autarkic ...
