I think it's cool. But then again I love all etymology.

in latin:

NEC = not
OTIUM = (be) unproductive

So the word negotiate comes from not being unproductive.
In Spanish the word for business is negocio.

And what's the opposite of being unproductive?




Yes! They all come from the same Latin phrase.
