There was also the time the Hunt brothers cornered the market in silver
(supposedly) and for a few months drove the price of silver nitrate and
paper/film up accordingly. Then the price of silver dropped, down to
about $4/oz, but the price of film & paper kept going up. The claim was
made that it was due to energy prices. I think more likely it was just
because they could.
