Blockchain and Supply Chain Management combines discussions of blockchain and supply chains, linking technologies such as artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, satellite imagery, and machine vision. The book examines blockchain’s basic concepts, relevant theories, and its roles in meeting key supply chain objectives. The book addresses problems related to inefficiency, opacity, and fraud, helping the digitization process, simplifying the value creation process, and facilitating collaboration. The book is balanced between blockchain and supply chain application and theory, covering the latest technological, organizational and regulatory developments in blockchain from a supply chain perspective. The book discusses the opportunities, barriers, and enablers of blockchain in supply chain policy, along with legal and ethical implications. Supply chain management faces massive disruption with the dynamic changes in global trade, the impact of Covid-19, and technological innovation. Entire industries are also being transformed by blockchain, with some of the most promising applications in supply chain management. Provides theoretical and practical insights into both blockchain and supply chains Features numerous illustrative case studies, boxes, tables, and figures Examines blockchain's impacts on supply chains in four key industries: Food and beverage, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and finance

When a brilliant young scientist at the U.S. Biological Warfare Laboratories in Maryland discovers a new anthrax-like strain of bacteria, he recognizes unique features that can change the world. Dr. Chris Gregory perfects the organism (BT-2000) to selectively destroy tobacco plants. He and seven other scientists (code name: Poker Players) devise an illegal covert operation. After smuggling BT-2000 into key countries they use top-secret devices stolen from Ft. Detrick to dispense the bacteria worldwide. Tobacco is soon eradicated from the earth. As the supply of tobacco diminishes to the last leaf, farmers go broke, industries collapse and nicotine-addicted smokers panic. Alcohol and drug use, anger in the workplace, road rage and spousal abuse increase. Criminals resort to robbery and murder to obtain remaining precious stocks of tobacco. Eventually the scientists are caught and imprisoned where they are ostracized and beaten by inmates who blame them for destroying their main source of pleasure and barter. After three years the world has changed. Now the air is fresh and clean, addictions have been overcome and rage has subsided. Because lung cancer and other tobacco-related diseases have almost disappeared Gregory is awarded the Nobel Prize for his discovery of a new approach to preventive medicine.
