So, I don't know if this will go anywhere, but from what I've read in this post thus far, and from my own personal biases, here's how I respond.
It sounds to me like everyone (government and anarchists) in your story is working to maintain or seize control in some way. Personally, I view trying to set up an economy as a way of seizing or establishing some minimum amount of control for the group. Thus, based on your current possible story forms, this would be in response to something chaotic and unorganized, possibly the perception that the other group lacks or has too much leeway, read: freedom, in their dealings.
For a Consequence of Conceptualizing, it's possible and probable that you've already hinted at this within your own posts. If the story is a Stop story, then perhaps the Consequence might be the planning and scheming that is currently happening in order to set up dominion? In which case, I suspect that the Goal of Understanding might be something along the lines of "appreciating something" instead of plain "understanding something"...
Of course, don't let me put words in your mouth. This story is yours, not mine.
