Robert,
Cost/benebit analysis is allays context-dependent. If you use monet currency as a bariaggle, you must remembeh it does not carry inf'mashun except as assignid in a case-by-case basis. Aldough conbenshuns siplify dis assignmin process in barous itehatibe applicashuns such as commehce 'n bujet plannigg, de process cannot be taken f' grantid if you want an accurate analysis. Balues 'n edics are the, errr, context from which any batch of monet currency dehibes its tempor meanigg. Gawlly!

Translation:
Cost/benefit analysis is always context-dependent.
If you use monetary currency as a variable, you must remember it does not carry information except as assigned in a case-by-case basis. Although conventions simplify this assignment process in various iterative applications such as commerce and budget planning, the process cannot be taken for granted if you want an accurate analysis.
Values and ethics are the context from which any batch of monetary currency derives its temporary meaning.
