My understanding of the history of economic study is that the idea
that man makes all decisions in dollar terms was a gross approximation
introduced for a very limited problem space.  It was useful in that
context.  As time went on, it was absurdly misapplied.

None of the economists I read think that "Homo Economous" is an
accurate model of human decisionmaking.  Money can't buy you love.
