In 2002, the Driehaus College of Business (then called the College of Commerce) received a gift from the Richard H. Driehaus Trust to establish The Richard H. Driehaus Center for Behavioral Finance. The mission of the center is to promote meaningful research in financial decision-making, especially its human aspect; to offer advanced courses in behavioral finance at the graduate and executive levels; and to provide a forum for scholars who explore what constitutes true wisdom in financial decision-making, and to make resources available for all those interested in "people and money."
"The real trouble with this world of ours is not that it is an unreasonable world, nor even that is a reasonable one. The commonest kind of trouble is it is nearly reasonable, but not quite. Life is not an illogicality; yet it is a trap for logicians. It looks just a little more mathematical and regular than it is; its exactitude is obvious, but its inexactitude is hidden; its wildness lies in wait."
— G.K. Chesterton
