Requests and Offers

In Italian, supply and demand is rendered as "domanda e l'offerta," or "requests and offers." (The Italian word "domanda" does not mean "demand," but instead "question" or "request.") It seems to me that Italian economists have the edge on their English-speaking counterparts in this regard!
