Hey Hernán!
    che está buenísimo! sorry...  I'm on it now and actually seems very very
promising. I've created a measure of some money by squared metter of a
custom material. This is what I needed. Awsome
    thanks !

PS: can you please send me the “Arithmetic with Measurements on
Dynamically-Typed Object-Oriented Languages” pdf? also any other related

We use Aconcagua as the base measure model for our financial applications.

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.
