Risk can be defined as uncertainty as to loss. Risk can create an economic burden by requiring reserve funds to pay for contingent losses and price increases of some goods and services. Risk may deprive society of some goods and services that are determined to involve too much risk to justify their production. 2. a. Pure risk involves uncertainty as to whether loss will occur. It does not involve a possibility of gain. Speculative risk involves uncertainty about an event that could produce either a profit or loss. b. Static risks are those that would exist in an unchanging society that is in stable equilibrium. Dynamic risks are caused by societal changes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
