More on millions and billions 2010-03-11
julio pose la question :
shouldn't the thousands of millions, tens of thousands of millions, and hundreds of thousands of millions be called what they are? technically they are not billions because billions come after 999,999,999,999 .

" that's the way is here in the US" does not explain any thing
