The smallest positive integer is 1.

1 is the multiplicative identity; ie anything times 1 is itself.

The greatest negative integer is the most positive negative integer which is -1.

Therefore the product of the greatest negative integer and the smallest positive integer is the greatest negative integer which is -1.
