A Ubiquitous Price

Speculate, Manipulate
"Criminal manipulation of the market. 

"I had not heard it stated that way before. While the law as it currently stands apparently allows for too much commodity speculation and effectively legalizes something closely akin to conflict-of-interest for a single entity, what makes it illegal is conspiring with others to effect the market for nefarious gain."

"Yeah, something like that. Controlling public discourse, especially with trivia, has all but obscured the activity."

"Keep in mind, that alone would be far from enough. Threatening a pre-emptive strike in the Middle East, if timed right, would help. A fragile international economy would not hurt, of course."

"So timing and coordination is crucial. To disrupt it would be attractive to their opponents, I suspect." Knowing the perpetrators could not shoot everywhere they would need to in a short enough period of time, the team's confidence advanced.
