Risk is inherent to any business, but not all types of risk are fully understood and they can be very difficult to properly quantify and manage. Furthermore, some industries are inherently more risky than others. The question becomes: How can you make a rational economic decision when you don’t fully understand the nature of the risks you face or have all of the tools necessary to quantify, analyze and address them?

In this talk by McCombs' Distinguished Senior Lecturer Britt Freund and UT Bureau of Economic Geology’s Chief Energy Economist Michelle Foss, we’ll explore the nature of risk analysis and discuss strategies for effectively addressing certain types of risk, using the oil and gas industry as an example. Register today!
