The 11/23/98 Wall Street Journal has an excellent articel ("China Is a
Big Swing Factor in Commodity Markets," at p. A18) that provides insight
into the inscrutable factors that lead China to dramatically, erratically
and unpredictably take actions -- especially in regard to cotton (which
they categorize as a strategic material due to its importance to them) --
that cause commodity prices worldwide to gyrate.
