This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.Biographie de l'auteur :
FRANK H. KNIGHT (1885-1972) was a graduate of the University of Tennessee where he received a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Arts degree. He then pursued his doctorate in Economics at Cornell University, studying under Professors Alvin Johnson and Allyn Young. This was where he completed his dissertation Cost, Value and Profit in 1916 which formed the basis of his later book Risk, Uncertainty, and Profit. Knight then joined the faculty of the University of Chicago where he eventually became chair of the Department of Economics. In this role, Knight was an early leader of what came to be known as the "first" Chicago school of economics. He was a prolific writer and had a great deal of influence on a generation of economists.
