New Year Events
...written by Chris Cox, posted in News, with 2 Comments.

During 2013 we have failed to put on both the BBQ and the Annual Dinner for different reasons but there remains a hangover from the last 2 or 3 seasons reflecting what has been happening on the pitch.

However a New Year is looming and we need to get on track, and improve our activities going forwards. To that end some of the most popular ideas are for us to go on a rail/drinking evening straight after a home game probaly Saturday 25th January after Bristol City. This would mean catching a train to Oakengates at 5:25 and going to the Crown, then working our way back via Shifnal and Codsall before returning to the Western for a last port of call. Either food or train tickets to be covered by the club funds.

The next plan is to run a bus to an away game.Either Brentford away on 22nd February or Orient away later in the season in April. The bus would start in Wolverhampton, or Bridnorth if there’s demand,┬ápick up en route with hopefully a breakfast stop along the way. After the game another food and drink┬ástop before we start dropping people off. This too would be subsidised from club funds.

Thirdly for now a dinner at the end ofthe season. After Wolves play Coventry on 26th Aprill oooks favorite as it’ll be in Northampton. Concerned that it might get moved by TV companies to another day but we’ll see nearer the time.

Please advise Coxy if you want to join in any of the above

    Hi Coxy,

    Chris and me would be interested in the cultural tour of Codsall and Shifnal as catching a coach from Wolves to come down for the Brentford game is madness for us Londoners!! Sadly for some but glorious for us, we shall be in Jamaica for the away games at Orient and Coventry celebrating our 50th birthdays (I know I only look 18 and Chris 118!)so that’s a no no too! Let us know the decision as we will book to stay over in Wolves after the Bristol City game if needs be.

    See you soon,

    Sue xxxx

    The Stern review was not only ccitirized for being too concerned with the more extreme scenarios, but for applying a near zero discount rate. Whatever the economist’s policy-related arguments over discount rates (and Prof. Tol uses 3% plus), the market valuations of share prices are based upon much, much higher discount rates. This is for good reason. Suppose at the end of 1911 someone could have known that there would be an oil embargo in 1973, resulting from a cartel of oil-producing nations usurping the considerable power of the oil companies. What should have been the discount factor on the 1911 price of oil stocks considering in the interim there were two world wars, between which there was a massive global depression? Even if this was the case the local market factors (such as the emergence of the car industry, global growth, the development of the internal combustion engine and the relative fall in the oil price against coal) were far more important than the historical events. I would contend that in 1911, even if were highly likely that an oil company would be rendered bankrupt 60 years later, the discount factor on the share price would be approximately zero. Furthermore, since the Stern review the scientific evidence has consistently failed to support the more alarmist scenarios resulting from any further warming (e.g. rapid melting of the Himalayan Glaciers or increased severity of hurricanes), nor for extreme temperature rises resulting from positive feedbacks to the CO2 induced warming. To the outsider looking at the emerging evidence, the cost impact of do-nothing scenarios (weighted by risk) is many times lower than when the Stern Review or AR4 were being published. I fully realise that your comments were moderated to increase the chance of publication. However, if a more balanced version of Stern were done on today’s evidence, I firmly believe that (like Prof. Tol has concluded) current proposed mitigation policies do not have any form of benefit-cost justification.
