Description

The Wall Street Journal reports that "For more than a century (bananas) have provoked riots and coups. Troops have been dispatched to protect them. Now they are at the center of a bitter trade war between the U.S. and Europe. Any business worth fighting for so fiercely must be great, right? Guess again. Banana farming is a brutal business, from the sprawling plantations of Latin America to the struggling plots of the Caribbean islands. .... Are the U.S. and European trade warriors crazy?"
