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.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
