Center for Family and Demographic [Bowling Green State University] Working Paper: “The Party’s Over: The Influence of SES on the Association between Alcohol Use and Young Adult Well-Being,” by Patrick M. Seffrin, Peggy C. Giordano, Wendy D. Manning, and Monica A. Longmore (2012-01, 2012, .pdf format, 38p.).


Alcohol use has been linked to domestic violence, depression, and weakened educational achievement among adolescents and young adults; however few studies have examined the role of socioeconomic status as an influence on these interrelationships. Drawing on four waves of panel data from the Toledo Adolescent Relationships Study (N = 1,066), the current study presents a within-individual analysis of alcohol use and its effects on educational aspirations and achievement and two problem outcomes–intimate partner violence and depressive symptoms. Results indicate that alcohol use among disadvantaged youths, over the long-term, results in lowered educational aspirations and weaker odds of college attendance, while also increasing levels of intimate partner violence and depressive symptoms, net of controls for social network characteristics, family background and demographic indicators. Long-term alcohol use among more advantaged youths, however, is not significantly related to intimate partner violence and depressive symptoms, and is linked to higher educational aspirations and achievement.

Centro De Estudios Monetarios Y Financieros [Madrid, Spain] Working Paper: “Reforming An Insider-Outsider Labor Market: The Spanish Experience,” by Samuel Bentolila, Juan J. Dolado, and Juan F. Jimeno (Working Paper No. 1106, November 2011, .pdf format, 42p.).


This paper presents a case study on reforming a very dysfunctional labor market with a deep insider-outsider divide, namely the Spanish case. We show how a dual market, with permanent and temporary employees makes real reform much harder, and leads to purely marginal changes that do not alter the fundamental features of labor market institutions. While the Great Recession and the start of the sovereign debt crisis triggered two labor reforms, the political economy equilibrium has notallowed them to be transformational enough.
