Until there’s an answer, we’ll keep asking.  Claims that it is “obvious” have no value.

It reminds me of a hustle that used to be common in New York – someone on the street would offer you a “brand new,” video camera or piece of stereo equipment, still shrink-wrapped and in the box, for $50 or so.  “Obviously” it was a video camera or whatever, and they had a story why they were selling it to you on the street for a fraction of its value (kid is sick and need money fast, it fell off a truck, lost the receipt so I can’t return it, my friend will know if I return it and it comes off their credit card, etc., etc.).  If you were greedy enough to want the “bargain,” you would go home, open the box and find a brick wrapped in newspaper.  (Apparently, access to shrink-wrapping equipment is not as rare as one might think.)

I never fell for this scam.

If what you have in your box is a video camera and not a brick, you’ll have to show it to us.  Otherwise, I’m not buying it.

Louis -
    For those us not quite as astute, could you unpack the above a little bit,
   (In particular, I'm trying to figure the how use of global implies USG control)

Please, not again!
