I remembered what it was all about. It had to do with economics and what happened to the economy. Simple fudging of numbers whether known or unknown radically threw the system out of equilibrium. This basic error that the situation highlights how simple it is to ascribe the wrong mathematical placeholder for a certain function. It is an error in accounting, but on a larger scale it has drastic consequences. Think about billions of dollars and millions of participants and it becomes obvious how serious the problem is.
If you think about it, the entire economy was based on improper ascription of mathematical language. Think about this little though experiment spread across the entire realm of the economy and it becomes obvious why things went wrong in a hurry. Structural accounting errors. The theory attempted to alter the data.
