    Intensity matching

    Here's my view of the political thought process in this case.

    Step one: Substitution. >> A difficult question "How much does cybercrime cost?" is replaced with a simpler question "How much do we care about cybercrime?"
    Step two: Intensity matching. >> Relative importance of the cybercrime issue is expressed on the monetary scale. A trillion dollars seems like a good match for something that's related to cyber warfare.

    And there you have it.
