Frank Knight on Risk, Uncertainty, and the Firm: A New Interpretation
The authors attempt to interpret Frank Knight by taking him on his own terms. Among their conclusions are the following: (1) Knight's distinction between risk and uncertainty is not solely a distinction between insurable and uninsurable risk; (2) Knight's explanation for the existence of firms does not reduce to a moral-hazard theory, except perhaps in the broadest and least-interesting sense; and (3) Knight's treatment of the problem of the separation of ownership from control is not as obviously wrong as commentators have made it out to be.
