Many responded that they did not know which word to write, the one for "trade" or the one for "management." We left that up to them to decide, and the resulting words make up our cover. Languages represented include Hindi, Turkish, Arabic, Greek, French, Tamil, Japanese, Spanish, German, and Agni, an African language. <http://hdl.handle.net/2027.42/50719>
