Business "Urban Legends"

Logo for Business
This site refutes some of the common "urban legends" that are discussed in International classes. For example, many Marketing texts discuss the naming of the Chevrolet Nova, which sold poorly in Spanish-speaking countries because its name translates as "doesn't go" in Spanish. According to this website, that is false. There is additional explanation provided as well as links to articles about the "legend." At the current time, only 6 are discussed, but more may be added.
