The time scope of this work is mainly the turn of the twenty-first century and ends with the economic crisis of 2007.

Economic Policy in the US in the Era of Ronald Reagan and its Impact
Horníková, Anna ; Pondělíček, Jiří (advisor) ; Sehnálková, Jana (referee)
The thesis, as suggested by its name Economic Policy in the U.S. in the era of Ronald Reagan and Its Impact, has as its primary goal the assessment of economic policy under president Ronald Reagan in the 1980s. During his two presidential terms, Reagan managed to completely alter the contemporary Keynesian approach to the economy, when he shifted the trend back to individual responsibility and free market. The thesis's mission is to prove that the so-called Reaganomics resulted in partial economic success in spheres such as lowering inflation and GDP growth, while, on the other hand, having negative impact in the sphere of the federal budget. The first chapter includes the introduction to Reagan's revolutionary economic ideology, particularly to the supply-side theory. The following chapter then examines the character and execution of individual reforms, so that the last chapter can successfully analyze its impact based on macroeconomic indicators.
Economic sanctions as a tool of US foreign policy toward Cuba in the 1960s
Kleiberová, Kamila ; Hornát, Jan (advisor) ; Pondělíček, Jiří (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on how economic sanctions work and also on their effectivness in a field of internation relations. The first part of the thesis shows an issue which makes the sanctions inefficient. The issue is a third party meaning that the third party can economically help to the sanctioned country. The theory is demonstrated on a case study of Cuban embargo imposed by the United States after 1959. The third party was the former USSR who helped Cuba from their economical problems so Cuba did not have to surrender to American conditions.
War on Drugs during Reagan administration
Krupičková, Kristýna ; Divišová, Kristýna (advisor) ; Pondělíček, Jiří (referee)
This paper focuses on the topic of the "War on Drugs" during Reagan administration. Its main objective is to compare goals set by the Reagan administration in the "War on Drugs" in the 1980s with their consequences and analyze the means that were used to fulfill these goals, which were set for domestic "War on Drugs" and introduce its "side effects" in the socio-economic sphere as well as to determine, whether goals set by Reagan administration were fullfilled or not. By comparing the goals set by Reagan's administration in 1986 and the analyzed results of Reagan's "War on Drugs" in late 1980s I determined the success of Reagan's "War on Drugs". However it is undeniable that applied solutions had major negative impact on racial minorities. Keywords: Reagan, drugs, american society, 1980s, domestic politics, War on Drugs
Analysis: Was Barack H. Obama more peacemaker than George W. Bush?
Kučera, Pavel ; Pondělíček, Jiří (advisor) ; Raška, Francis (referee)
Barack Obama's election to the presidential office in 2009 for many people from the United States and abroad was a promise of a change in US foreign policy, which, in the reign of his predecessor George W. Bush, was too discredited by a military campaign to Iraq. Weapons of mass destruction, which were the official rationale for an attack on the regime of Saddam Hussein, were, according to many, only a cover for violent US "export of democracy" and increased influence in the oil-rich region. In the US, however, a year ago President Barack Obama left the highest office and was replaced by Donald Trump. And it is time to evaluate whether and how Obama fulfilled his determination to exert America from the "never-ending" conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan, caused - by Obama's words - by his predecessor George W. Bush, who was perceived as a "gunman" in the eyes of a substantial part of the US but also of the world public and never went far to approve the bombing during his presidency. At the same time, however, Barrack Obama's critics often say that his image of the peacemaker is just a chimera, as Obama was no better than his predecessor, and he earned the Nobel Peace Prize undeservedly. And when we make a very simple comparison of the number of countries that both presidents have ordered to bomb, we...
Anti-Americanism and Canadian Cultural Policy (1928-1957)
Havlíková, Veronika ; Fiřtová, Magdalena (advisor) ; Pondělíček, Jiří (referee)
This thesis named "Anti-Americanism and Canadian Cultural Policy (1928-1957)" examines how Canadian federal government cultural policies were influenced by a specific form of anti-Americanism, which reflected concerns over Americanization and cultural absorption by the United States, in this formative period for the development of a distinct national identity during the time of Canada's colony-to-nation transition. The chosen research design is interpretative content analysis of the reports of two Canadian royal commissions commonly known as the Aird Commission (1928-1929) and the Massey Commission (1949-1951). The aim of this thesis is to identify the main factors and incentives for a policy of government intervention in the field of culture and to assess the role of anti-Americanism as a response to what was perceived as American cultural invasion that threatened the development of a distinct Canadian culture. The theoretical framework contains a discussion about different forms of anti-Americanism, with emphasis on its unique nature in Canada, and introduces the concept of cultural imperialism which helps us to better understand Canadian opposition to American cultural influences in the examined period.
McCarthyism and it's picture in press
Šeliga, Vojtěch ; Pondělíček, Jiří (advisor) ; Calda, Miloš (referee)
The thesis deals with the phenomenon of American history known as McCarthyism, and it does so in the context of the Cold War. The work focuses primarily on the role of the press, which significantly contributed to the emergence and later demise of McCarthyism. It also deals with international and internal reasons for the emergence of McCarthyism and the person of Senator McCarthy. Using data from the Gallup research shows the effects McCarthyism had on the American society. The work concludes that McCarthyism relied on the printed media support. The press tried to deliver the message, but did not comment on it, and it was the reader who was supposed to form their own opinion. Some journalists were afraid of retribution and others were in favour of or agreed with the anti-Communist campaign. Some newspapers saw the easy money that covering the Communist infiltration was bringing. Only a small portion of printed media actually criticized McCarthyism... The reasons for the emergence of McCarthyism relates mainly to the geopolitical situation. The Soviet Union had gained control over large parts of Eastern Europe and acquired the atomic bomb, the Communists had won the civil war in China, and would soon be clashing with the US in the Korean War. The society feared new world war. By contrast the end of...
