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.
