ABSTRACT
The article discusses the initiative of economist Huang Jikun to promote genetically modified rice in the Chinese market. The government appears to be listening to Huang. In the 1990s China was one of the first countries to approve some genetically modified cash crops, such as cotton and corn, and today China has more acreage devoted to growing GM crops than just about any other country in the world.
