| Why would you ever need to multiply monetary quantities?

  Units, dude.  Units.  Just /add/ two numbers with different denominators,
  and you get into this problem right away.  Granted, you can make do with
  400th of a cent, but then you need to get into the whole least common
  denominator game, and you should have used rationals to begin with.

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
