 From a first glance at the Longman's list, very roughly comparing it  
a 3,000+ year old banking application (Letters of Credit), Longman's  
70% of the business vocabulary.    (04)

I say 3,000+ years old because when I worked on said system, we were
told that letters of credit were used by the Phoenicians.    (05)
