Moss Tells Globe and Mail Monsanto-Bayer Merger Will Harm Competition

Diana Moss was quoted in the September 1, 2017 Globe and Mail story Bayer, Monsanto merger sows seeds of discord for agribusiness competition; EU competition commission may yet salt the earth on a proposed Bayer, Monsanto tie-up.

“The merger substantially eliminates competition across a number of important markets,” said Diana Moss, president of the American Antitrust Institute. “It could squeeze out smaller rivals and saddle farmers and consumers with higher prices, reduced choice and less innovation.”
