Center for Family and Demographic Research [Bowling Green State University] Working Paper: “Cohabitation and Intimate Partner Violence during Emerging Adulthood: High Constraints and Low Commitment,” by Wendy D. Manning, Monica A. Longmore, and Peggy C. Giordano (Working Paper No. 2015-27, 2015, .pdf format, 35p.).

Abstract:

In recent years, a majority of young adults experience cohabitation. Nevertheless, cohabitation is a risk factor for intimate partner violence (IPV). Drawing on exchange and commitment theory we analyzed young adults’ IPV experiences using the recently collected (2011-2012) Toledo Adolescent Relationships Study data (n = 926). We found that sociodemographic characteristics, relationship commitment and constraints (e.g., sexual exclusivity, dedication, financial enmeshment), and prior experience with violence (in prior relationships and family of origin) were associated with IPV, but did not explain the association between cohabitation and IPV. We examined variation among individuals in cohabiting relationships to determine who faces the greatest risk of intimate partner violence. Serial cohabitors and cohabitors who experienced both low commitment and high relational constraints faced the greatest risk of IPV. These findings provided insights into the implications of cohabitation for the well-being of young adults.

Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Working Paper: “Stress Testing Banks: Whence and Whither?” by Pavel Kapinos, Oscar Mitnik and Christopher Martin (Working Paper No. 2015-07, November 2015, .pdf format, 29p.).

Abstract:

This paper provides a brief overview of the recent practice of stress testing banking institutions, focusing on capital adequacy. We argue that stress testing has been successfully used to mitigate bank opacity; quantify systemic risk under extreme but plausible stress; keep the participants mindful of severely adverse shocks, thereby mitigating “disaster myopia” and concomitant financial instability; and improve the data collection and analytical capabilities of financial institutions. Our paper then reviews several critiques of stress testing made by policymakers and academics. We also propose several modifications of the current stress-testing practice, such as the fusion of liquidity and capital adequacy stress testing, expansion of granular data availability, and explicit modeling of sectors inextricably connected to banking as well as the feedback mechanisms from these sectors. Addressing these issues is likely to keep stress testing highly relevant for promoting financial stability in the future.
