Yes, sometimes proposing a new currency to replace the dollar will turn people into rapists.
Well "NotDrWho," since you are apparently new to this dimension I'll take a moment to explain a few things to you. In this dimension it sometimes happens that rapists and abusers of women happen to be accomplished practioners of some useful trade. Some people will even overlook their abusive behavior towards women due to the fame or power that they achieve in their trade. When they finally get called out for it some people will invent excuses and apologize for the rapists. You seem to be getting information from that sort. You should reconsider that.
Perhaps it wouldn't occur to you, but rapists and other abusers to women might at times do other things, such as leak juicy documents you have an interest in, or forment monetary policy.
When will you be journeying back to your home world / dimension? It might not be safe for you here, you seem susceptible to rabid ideas.
