Spanish term or phrase:pelotazo (out of curiosity)
I unsuccessfully tried to explain to a non-Spanish-speaking friend what "pelotazo" is and failed completely..
I Spain we call "pelotazo" to a very simple economic transaction that makes at least one of the parties enormously rich, because he has obtained influence of the powerful of information he wasn't supposed to know.
When many of these operations are carried out every day, we speak of a "cultura del pelotazo".
