Irreverent name, serious business

In the 17th century, Dutch traders, merchants, and bankers ran much of the world’s business. Regularly, their business was done on the fly – writing deals, plans, and agreements on whatever was handy – which was, in the case of these rich men, a cigar box with just a bit of space to jot an idea or two. In Dutch, “on the back of the cigar box” (op de achterkant van een cigarendoos), is a colloquialism to convey a big idea conveyed efficiently – a solution’s essence.
