Psychological barriers in finance: Do they matter?
Brabcová, Klára ; Krištoufek, Ladislav (advisor) ; Fišerová, Tereza (referee)
Psychological barriers are one of the well-know anomalies in the behavioural fin- ance field. The diverging views are still a discussed topic in the academic sphere, as well as in the world of finance professionals. This thesis investigated the role of these barriers in a group of 9 American, European and Asian indices over the period from 2002 to 2018. Using the uniform distribution test and standard or- dinary least squares regression, we look specifically at the effect of the barriers on the distribution of index price levels. Subsequently, we analyse the impact of the barriers on the stock returns. Our results show insignificant impact of such psychological barriers on both of these aspects. This confirms the hypothesis sug- gested in recent studies on this topic, which claims that the market anomalies tend to disappear over the time upon their publication.

Bank regulatory standards and supervision: The impact on the of banks' efficiency
Kufnerová, Andrea ; Fišerová, Tereza (advisor) ; Havránková, Zuzana (referee)
This thesis examines the bank efficiency and the impact of the regulatory and supervisory instruments on the efficiency of banks actively performing on the financial markets in the countries of European Union. Our analysis concerns 8-year time period, covering also the period of global financial crisis with the aim to determine possible changes in the relationship regulation versus efficiency. We apply SFA Fourier-flexible model for estimation of profit and cost efficiency scores. Consequently we use GLS panel data estimation in order to test for the regulatory determinants of efficiency, we have specified 6 various models with the focus on different regulatory instruments. Results firstly suggest that high cost efficiency does not necessarily imply high bank profit efficiency. Secondly, we uncovered the negative relation between market concentration, the level of development of financial market and the cost efficiency of foreign banks. Thirdly, we also found evidence supporting the assumption of positive impact of private monitoring and the independence of supervisory authority implying the increasing of transparency in the market. Additionally, we uncovered support for negative effect of activity and diversification restrictions. However, the results concerning the financial crisis period are...

Koubele, Jakub ; Gregor, Martin (advisor) ; Fišerová, Tereza (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to model a market with protection, where protection providers can compete for their clients by price competition, but also by military forces. Besides the analytical approach, we examine an agent-based computational model which simulate market with protection. We found out that ability of protection providers to take into account the long-term impact of their actions is necessary condition for emergence of tax competition, and we also described how various factors can influence behavior of protection providers.

Economic Analysis of Organizing Ice Hockey World Championship 2015 in Ostrava and Prague
Halásová, Michaela ; Soudek, Jan (advisor) ; Fišerová, Tereza (referee)
In many cases the organization of major sport events brings various benefits to hosting economies, especially those resulting from encouraged tourism. However, these events carry extensive costs coming mostly from public resources which could be used for other purposes, e.g. healthcare. The main goal of this thesis is to analyze the socioeconomic impact of the Ice Hockey World Championship 2015 on Prague and the Moravian-Silesian Region using a Cost-Benefit Analysis in which costs and benefits are summed up and benefit-cost ratio calculated. In our analysis we conclude that the event was beneficial not only for the Czech Ice Hockey Association; the hosting organization reporting profit of 450 million CZK before taxes but also for the regions with a benefit-cost ratio of 5.53, meaning that the benefit created equals 5.53 times the amount the regions invested into the event. Moreover, in this analysis we confirm an overall positive effect of the championship on tourism.

The Determinants of International Tourism Demand
Vencovská, Jana ; Strielkowski, Wadim (advisor) ; Fišerová, Tereza (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on identifying the key factors affecting international tourism demand. Additionally, it provides an assessment of the economic impact of tourism, which is followed by an overview of possible interpretations of the terms "tourism" and "tourist" and their evolution in time. Based on a review of existing literature, the next part discusses the meaning of the term "tourism demand", the ways how this demand can be measured and on its main determinants. The last chapter of the thesis is dedicated to an econometric analysis of the determinants of the demand for tourism to the Czech Republic from thirty-eight different countries. The data on the number of guests registered in collective accommodation establishments collected by the Czech Statistical Office was used as a measure of tourism demand. The period between years 2000 - 2012 was investigated. The model was specified in a dynamic form, which allowed us to account for the Word-of-Mouth (WoM) effect and to reflect the importance of tourists' loyalty. The Arellano-Bond generalized method of moments (GMM) estimation method was used to estimate the model. One of the main conclusions of the analysis is that 31% of the tourist arrivals are attributable to habit formation and the WoM effect. The results further show that tourism...
