    assess

    Hi,
    "Money has other uses, too. One of them is to assess the value of things."
    Could you please tell me if "assess" was a correct word in the context?
    Thanks.

    To assess is to estimate or to fix the value of something.
    Money does not assess the value of things.
    The prices of things in monetary terms give an indication of the relative values of things.

    "Money has other uses, too. One of them is to record the value of things after the value has been assessed".
