Business Week on Monsanto, Pickens
Monsanto on the Menu: How it has transformed itself from a money-losing pariah to a $ 5 Billion pariah, and how it is betting that the food crisis will create new markets for genetically modified products.

"As far as Pickens is concerned, he could be selling wind, water, natural gas, or uranium; it's all a matter of supply and demand. "There are people who will buy the water when they need it.
