Arbenz was known for his populist policies, which included agricultural reform and increased wages for the peasants. These changes were a threat to the Guatemalan elite as well as foreign corporations like the U.S.-owned United Fruit Company. This company had large land holdings throughout the country. Eisenhower’s administration intervened because of pressure from United Fruit and fears that Arbenz supporters were spreading communist influences.
