Proposition 37, the Mandatory Labeling of Genetically Engineered Food Initiative, was on the November ballot here in California. It lost narrowly in the election. The outcome will shape the path of innovation in food and agriculture for decades to come. I wrote it about how in this post, Innovation, Information Assymetry, and GMO Lemons, shortly before the election. I think the dynamics descibed are still important to keep in the public dialog about our food system and the relative value of transparency...at least important enough to link to here.
