The Bay of Pigs and its influence on U.S.-Cuba relations
Jaroš, Milan ; Pondělíček, Jiří (advisor) ; Perutka, Lukáš (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on the Bay of Pigs invasion which had been an important part of the U.S.-Cuba relations in the 1960s. The period between the Cuban revolution and the Cuban missile crisis was marked by rapid deterioration of those relations. The thesis is set exactly in this time frame. The invasion was the outcome of the previous deterioration and Castro's victory became the reason for further escalation of the hostilities between the United States and Cuba. This thesis answers the question what decision-making process led to the actual execution of the invasion, what mistakes caused the invasion to fail, who is to blame for this outcome and what consequences did the American failure have on further evolution of the U.S.-Cuba relations. It analyses steps of the planning process and the influence of all the interested parties on this process. It reaches conclusion that the aggressive approach was implemented because of cold war circumstances and the communist threat, the American fear of losing their influence in the western hemisphere and personal ambitions of involved participants. The responsibility for the failure cannot be assigned to just Kennedy's decision making, the CIA's planning or poorly organized Cuban opposition because the fiasco resulted from all these things together....

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.
