"You know, we're almost like brothers, Presidente - but have you seen brothers fight...? It doesn't have to be this way, though - we both share a deep and abiding love of money! But if you keep listening to all these people with their morals and ethics and bleeding hearts..." - When issuing ultimatum

"It's no good, Pres - the smart money has had enough of your wonky politics, and we don't take disappointment lying down! You think the last financial crisis was a disaster? Everything in capitalist world happens by design. We call ourselves the Invisible Hand for a reason, and we're very well connected. We can raise material costs or lower export prices - Heck, we can even halve the size of your morning coffee - that's right, we own the baristas now!" - when you fail the ultimatum

Financial Crisis: Doubles all money costs. Halves all trade prices. Halves the brokered conversion rate for Swiss Bank money. All effects lasts for a year.
