"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


History of the Center of Behavioral Science


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 in 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."
