    Attention: AoM 2021 scholars of risky decision making! Join us on Monday, August 2nd at 5pm (ET) for "What We've Learned in 100 Years of Knight".

    This event marks 100 years since the description of "Knightian uncertainty", a specific type of uncertainty that is key to unlocking unprecedented returns. Knightian uncertainty characterizes entrepreneurship, but is not limited to entrepreneurship.

    • post-pandemic recovery (Mark Packard, University of Nevada, Reno)
    • entrepreneurial mindset (Norris Kreuger, University of Phoenix)
    • historical perspectives (David Townsend, Virginia Tech)
    • contemporary perspectives (Russ McBride, University of California, Merced)
    • artificial intelligence (Jackie Csonka-Peeren, University of Waterloo, Canada)
