Title: Pouring Round-up Down The (Economic) Drain
Post by: Wake-up! on October 26, 2018, 09:28:00 am
Bayer recently acquired Monsanto in a buyout many ' outsiders' questioned. Apparently, the Bayer Board of Directors did not see this coming.

"The good news is that this ruling affirms the company’s liability for causing illness from their product, and opens the door for more lawsuits and stricter regulation of agrochemicals in the future. Ian Hilliker, an analyst at Jefferies LLC in London, estimated in a note to clients that based on a class action lawsuit involving 8,700 plaintiffs believed to have cancer as a result of glyphosate exposure, Monsanto’s liability could reach $800 billion dollars. To put this in perspective, the original Bayer-Monsanto buyout offer was $57 billion dollars. Clearly, this no longer looks like an “asset” to Bayer and its stockholders."

The toll on Bayer after acquiring Monsanto and its poisonous Roundup had been heavy. Bayer just announced a 10% lay-off of its company employees as the company's value sinks like an anchor.

Justice is being served.

Catching Up With Round-up

Several months ago a California jury awarded a man 780 million dollars as a settlement for Round-up causing his cancer. A week later Costco removed Round-up from all its stores.

Last week, 'our' EPA announced that Round-up was safe to use.

And now this, back in Europe. Monsanto/Bayer to pay out two billion bucks in damages!! Read it here;  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-13/bayer-ordered-pay-2-billion-roundup-damages-admits-spying-influential-europeans
