In the December 2014 issue of Environment and Development Economics, we published the article, "The economic power of the Golden Rice opposition" by Wesseler and Zilberman. The paper generated substantial interest, not only in academia but also among civil society groups. In this note, we address some of the concerns that have been raised about our results. Our main conclusion remains that misguieded regulations in the case of Golden Rice have cost millions of healthy life years and billions of dollars.
