The have told Ryder that Garber was the

The
story began when a man named Ryder hijacks Pelham 123. The hijacking began in Subway
6 in New York City where it departed from Pelham Bay Park station at around
1:23 p.m. There were three bad guys that accompanied Ryder. They are Bashkin,
Emri and Phil Ramos who happens to be the former train operator. The hostage
taking happened when they loosen the front portion of the car from the train as
they took the passengers in that current situation. Garber was an employee at
the MTA that works for the Rail Control Center at the same time he was also a train
dispatcher. He got a call from Ryder who demands 10 million dollars worth of cash
to be paid within the next 60 minutes. Ryder alarms them that he will execute a
hostage if they can’t make it on the deadline. He also warns them that every
minute that if they pass the deadline or make him force to wait, he will
eventually have another hostage taking. The transit police officer was killed
by Bashkin who approached him and recognized that something was not right. Ramos
and Bashikin permitted the passengers who are not positioned in front of the
car to be free excluding the motorman. Then Garber opposed the negotiations
with Ryder and begins to develop a rapport. Ramos and Emri on the other hand
begin to set up in the tunnel the Internet access. After that, Ryder used his
laptop in order to observe the Dow Jones Industrial Average that took almost 1
000 points throughout the following hours that responded to the hostage-taking.
The laptop was also connected to one of the passengers in the Internet while
the webcam of the computer was also activated. The webcam was used by the
people in the control center in order to watch Ryder and Ramos. Then, the NYPD
Emergency Service Unit Lieutenant Camonetti entered the RCC and took over
negotiations. Then he commanded Garber to abandon the premises quickly. Then,
there was a sudden gush that infuriates Ryder. He then discovered that there
are allegations on the news online that was reported after Ramos have told Ryder
that Garber was the target at the MTA and it is not the dispatching trains.
Then Garber was force to confess making a threat to kill the passenger.
Following the incident, Garber was explaining there was a bride offered to him.
 He told Ryder that he used the money as
a means of payment for the college tuition fee of the child. He also added that
he would have made that same decision without the consent from the financial
offer.

Simultaneously,
the mayor agreed to deliver the ransom money and ordered the NYPD to deliver it
to Ryder. While on the way to the delivery point, an accident happened among
the police and has failed to get the money on time. Garber told Ryder that the
money was dropped off but Ryder refuses to believe it because he was monitoring
the whole scene through his laptop and he knows that Garber was lying. Ryder
was angry and for some reasons he begins to threaten and execute a hostage
again among the children and the child’s mother. Then another hostage taking
occurred and a former soldier comes to the rescue. He sacrificed himself in
order to save the mother and child. Unfortunately, the former soldier was
killed when he save the mother and the child. There was a short gunfight that
erupt the NYPD ESU sniper. The rat then accidentally bit it thus leading into discharging
his weapon that caused the death of Ramos.

To cut
the story short, the MTA believed that the hijackers as well as Garber are
still inside the train. Then Garber wanted to escape from the hijackers. He
followed them to the emergency exit that was located inside of an abandoned
subway station. The train stopped safely and the police noticed that Ryder was
no longer on board.  Ryder drove a taxi
at the same time Garber followed him using a truck. Ryder checked his laptop
and noticed that there he was on some sort of a short sold in the market and
made an investment from gold. He earned profit that was larger than his ransom
money.  Then Garber caught him on
Manhattan Bridge where Ryder pulls a trigger on Garber. Ryder then pulls the
trigger on his gun then finally he shot Garber. While Garber was lying on the
floor, Ryder told Garber that he considers him a hero. Eventually, the mayor
thanks Garber for saving the hostages and reminds him about his bribery
charges. 

In
relation to the movie about economics, Ryder was accused of stock manipulation
in the stock exchange market. There were parts of the film that Ryder always
checks the news online about the stock exchange market. He purchased derivative
contracts that allow them to benefit a leveraged way when the stock markets
dropped on news of their hostage taking. Given the fact that, the right to sell
an asset at a specified price will increase in its value while the price of
that asset drops. Moreover, the bigger the drop the quicker it happens on the
purchases and thus the more money that Ryder and the two bad guys along with
him would make. There was also a scene where when the train was hijack and the
stock market went down. The price of the gold was doubled due to the
uncertainty. He took advantage because he knew that the market would react this
way. He used options to his $2 million initial investment that grew up to $300
million in the same day.
