Which one has overthrown more governments?

The Banana Companies. Some crazy history.

If you get a chance, read Dan Koeppel's, Banana : the fate of the fruit that changed the world. Fascinating history of how we got bananas as our lowest price fruit, and what the companies did to keep them that way.
