Green gold loses out to 'dollar bananas'
But soon they may also become a unit of misery. For there are dollar bananas, grown in Latin America for less money by American multinationals. If the United States has its way, countries such as St Lucia will no longer have its products protected by the European Union, leaving small banana growers here to compete with giants like Chiquita.
