…¿Cual de los dos es el nombre correcto para referirse a la moneda china? Ese el nombre de un breve, pero informativo, post de Market Beat -un blog del WSJ-.
Renminbi — abbreviated RMB — is the formal term most often used by Chinese officialdom to refer to the currency. (It’s also nice to drop into conversations here and there though to impress the boss.) Literally, it means “People’s Currency.” But it’s a too stuffy for everyday use. “No one says RMB,” Cheng Li, a senior fellow at Brookings told MarketBeat.
It seems like there’s not a really good equivalent to renminbi in American English, maybe something like “legal U.S. tender.” Yuan is renminbi, just like the dollar is legal U.S. tender — but so are dimes, nickels and quarters.
