Marketplace for Monday, March 10, 2014

United Fruit has come a long way. The fruit distributor now known as Chiquita Brands is merging with Fyffe’s of Dublin. We look at the banana biz and the fruit biz – both companies are into other fruits, too. Plus: We examine what is wrong with Ukraine’s economy and what it needs to do to repair it and get out from under Russian economic dominance. How much aid does it need. Finally: After a string of deaths, Sigma Alpha Epsilon eliminates all together.  This is a survival move by SAE.  We look at the frat as an economic entity—because Frats are big business, and have all the trappings, from lobbyists.
