The FRIC Tapestry - a 20 meters long account (in Danish) of the financial crisis. The tapestry shows a timeline of the crisis and explains 6 key concepts that will help you understand the mechanics of a financial crisis. 

Find the tapestry at and learn more about the evolution of the crisis from the beginning and till today.


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

Find the posters here and videos here.


On Saturday, June 21, David Lando gave a talk on why regulation can’t 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.
