FRIC at the Science in the City Festival 2014

FRIC Tapestry welcome

FRIC participated in the Science in the City Festival from June 22-26, 2014.

The Science in the City Festival was a free festival for the general public. At the festival, we displayed our impressive 20 meters long FRIC Tapestry, we invited participants to pass by the FRIC Lounge and Center Leader David Lando gave a talk on why regulation cannot curtail crises.

The FRIC Tapestry is a 20 meters long account (in Danish) of the financial crisis from 2008-2013. The tapestry shows a timeline of the crisis and explains 6 key concepts that help to understand the mechanics of a financial crisis. You can have a look at the tapestry in the online version here at www.cbsfrictapet.dk and learn more about the evolution of the crisis from the beginning and till today or you can pass by the canteen at CBS Solbjerg Plads where you can see the long tapestry hanging in all its splendor.

On Saturday, June 21, David Lando gave a talk on why regulation cannot curtail crises. In his talk David Lando shed light on how the financial world always have sought to steer clear of regulation in creative ways, and how the seemingly best solution for one crisis became the foundation for the next.

In the FRIC Lounge, the focus was on the key concepts of a financial crisis. Here you could find posters on 4 subjects and listen to 4 videos (in Danish) where David Lando talks about frictions, American call options, liquidity and more.
