profiteer = (in the context or wartime) a war profiteer, someone who makes excessive, unfair, or unreasonable profits at the expense of the community or the nation, by taking advantage of a wartime situation (especially when certain goods are in short supply); often referring to 1) someone who increases prices due to the wartime scarcity of goods, such as when the seller has a monopoly or is a rare, limited, or essential supplier, 2) a seller of armaments and/or equipment for military purposes, who makes high profits, and 3) someone who makes high profits by selling goods on the black market (such as during a time of government-enforced rationing, when the amount of certain goods people can buy is limited by official decree)
