GM Organisms/Deutsche Bank

Thu Aug 26 09:56:15 PDT 1999

I'd hesitate before getting excited about this one. Not meaning to be horrible, but a Sell note from Deutsche Bank Securities isn't going to bring any form of capital to its knees. DB Securities is the ghost of Morgan Grenfell, now beefed up with those BT Alex Brown unfortunates who couldn't find a date for the get-out-of-jail party. A sell note from them has about as much impact as ... well ... a Sell note from Flemings.

Which brings to mind the worst review I ever received -- the Telegraph described a document I'd produced as "landing on the financial markets with all the impact of a feather coming lightly to rest on a blancmange".

Yes, indeed. I agree with Carl. This is a milestone. It shows that the barrier to the development of the productive forces (in this case GM food) is the capitalist Deutsche Bank.

Deutsche Bank's reactionary attack on GM food should be opposed. - -- Jim heartfield
