I don't think modern economics has really adopted the idea of currency as a representation of "units of work" and I think there is much to be learned from understanding that relationship. I'm about to spend a lot of my own "units of work" on learning more about economics and this is one area I hope to explore. It's no "Higgs hunt" but I think it can contribute.
