Agricultural biotechnology industry structure is noted for its concentration, particularly following a spate of mergers and acquisitions (M&As) in the mid- to late 1990s. Concentration is most apparent in the biotechnology R&D and innovation markets. By 2010, Fuglie et al. (2011) estimated that eight seed and biotech firms accounted for 76% of all R&D spending. Consequently the ownership of innovations was also concentrated among these firms. By the year 2007, the share of ag-biotech patents held by the top 10 companies was estimated at about 75%, with 2 firms

per person is only 0.3 ha per person, because the country is 80% moun- tainous. Of these crops 2 million ha is under rice. In order to feed these people most food is imported. Although some surveys of Japanese biotechnolo- gy have pointed out the relatively low importance of agricultural biotechnology when compared to agri- cultural exporting countries like Australasia or the United States, the increased capacity for food pro- duction from a limited area of land is of great poten- tial benefit to Japan, where there is little agricul- tural land available.

1. Introduction In the last decade, countries have increasingly turned to preferential trade agreements among sub-sets of countries rather than multilateral forums when seeking the perceived benefits of trade liberalization. Trade agreements do not focus solely on trade liberalization. They are also vehicles whereby rules can be developed to manage trade. One of the most contentious issues in international commercial policy is how to internationally regulate trade in the products of modern agricultural biotechnology ( Isaac 2007 ). It is a contentious issue

Kershen Abstract Using historical analogies to China and its suppression of the Treasure Fleets of the 15th cen- tury and to the adoption of the “Progress of Science” clause of the United States Constitution in 1789, this article explores the cultural attitudes of risk-amplifiers and risk-minimizers about agricultural biotechnology in Europe and the United States. The article explores these attitudes regarding the
