It's a particularly tricky problem since the relative values change
frequently, rapidly and chaotically; honestly I would prefer to claim
that money is not really a Unit in any meaningful way. Units are
really defined values with defined relationships to other derived and
founding units. Currency is a medium of exchange with variable ratios.
