Risk for vs Risk of

Postby pdh0224 » Wed Oct 06, 2004 9:34 pm

Dear teacher,

"This country was founded on people who are risk takers," she said. The goal of government will be to minimize the risks for people on the ground who are not involved in space flight and did not agree to take on any risk, and to make sure that the risks for passengers are fully and accurately described.

Q : What is difference between "risk for people" and "risk of people"? Is it just the way of a expression?


All the best, :)
