That's just incorrect. You shouldn't use (binary) floats for many *accounting*
purposes, but for many financial/econometric analyses, floats are de rigeur and
work much better than decimals (either floating or fixed point). If you are
collecting gigs of stock prices, you are much more likely to be doing the latter
than the former.
