Untitled[edit]

I believe that this is almost entirely plagiarized from http://cepa.newschool.edu/het/profiles/knight.htm —Preceding unsigned comment added by Baffledexpert (talkcontribs) 02:40, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Information was used (or should we say disseminated) from public domain New School webpages, source is mentioned at bottom. Plagiarised is very heavy wording. Please read New School webpages about their policy for use of their information.Robertsch55 (talk) 12:37, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Copied text[edit]

I was about to delete most of the article because it appeared to be obvious plagiarism copied from the New School web site. However, as pointed out above, permission is granted to use the text. Specifically, "As far as using the material contained here, just about every use is granted, except that of using the material on this website to make money."[1] However, the source of the copied text is not listed under the references section as it should be. Instead, it is only listed as an external link. When you copy an entire article into Wikipedia, it's a bit more than just an external link. I am going to move the New School article to the "references" section. --JHP (talk) 06:06, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

I'm afraid that aside from as allowed in non-free content policy and guideline, Wikipedia has never accepted material that is licensed to restrict commercial reuse. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 15:49, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

The statement that little progress has been made on integrating Knightian uncertainty into economics is wrong.

Most notably Jimmy Savage's book The Foundations of Statistics makes progress.

Also Amscombe-Aumann stuff.

See Itzhak Gilboa's excellent book The Theory of Decision under Uncertainty for a summary.

I hope someone better informed than I and much better informed than the page's current author updates this page soon! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 158.143.107.20 (talk) 20:20, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Taught Ronald Coase?[edit]

Hello. In this article it says that Ronald Coase was a student of Frank Knight but i've been unable to confirm it anywhere else on the Internet. Has anyone got a source for that? But i have read that he had four students which later on received nobelprize but from what i've heard the fourth was Paul Samuelson and not Ronald Coase.

Coase said Knight was a major influence on him, so Coase is his "student" (but he did not take K's courses) see Ross B. Emmett (2010). The Elgar Companion to The Chicago School of Economics. Elgar. p. 238.  Rjensen (talk) 12:59, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
