Business is part of human culture. People like to negotiate and bargain.

Sometimes, the business is calm. Sometimes, it’s very busy!

When vendors and shoppers negotiate the final price, they finally make a good deal.

Everyone wants to reduce the price. One eighth, one sixth, one third  or even fifty percent are an excellent deal!
