Quote of the Day: The Xera

Tuesday, November 06, 2007 | 11:45 AM

Rhymes with Lira, sounds like zero! 

Via Bill Fleckenstein, comes this new name for the dollar -- the Xera!

Introducing the Xera:

Thanks to the suggestion put forth by a reader of my daily column, I have come up with the new name for our currency. Henceforth, it shall be called the xera. That's a combination of Xerox, for the piece of Xerox paper that it is; lira, which in the past was one of the world's chronically weak currencies; and, most importantly, the fact that it sounds like zero. That is ultimately where the xera is headed.
