Fama-Miller Working Paper
Since the conference version of this report in February 2011, bank stress tests have been almost continuously in the news. In the United States, the Dodd-Frank Act mandates annual stress tests for key institutions. In early 2011, the Federal Reserve conducted the first test under the Act on major banks, and is currently conducting the second test, the results of which will be announced in early 2012.
