Assuming that because silver prices are down 20% that film prices will also reduce is rather ingenuous it's more likely to increase the film companys profits, and their share holders dividends.
Any time costs of materials goes down for Kodak (or Ilford, for that matter), I think it's a good thing. The rich are getting richer but I refuse to see a bogeyman behind every tree. It's self-limiting.
I photograph things to see what things look like photographed.
