Problém černého pasažéra v Severoatlantické alianci v období 2006 - 2016 a implikace pro fiskální politiku
Richterová, Jitka ; Maule, Petr (advisor) ; Klement, Josef (referee)
The purpose of this thesis is to examine the problem of free riding in NATO with regards to fulfilling the criteria of defence expenditures as well as econometric analysis and interpretation of the defence expenditures of the member states in the period of 2006 to 2016. Using spearman correlation test, this thesis finds a significant positive correlation between GDP of member states and their defence expenditures. Explanatory variables include main economic indicators such as GDP, GNI, share of GDP devoted to defence expenditures, average annual change in defence expenditures, etc. Main findings include the conclusion that there is a significant level of free riding in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and that larger member states indeed bear the larger burden. Furthermore, based on having lower average defence expenditures than NATO in the examined period, the thesis labels nineteen of the member states as free riding, given that their defence expenditures are below the NATO average. After examining and analysing free riding in NATO the thesis also highlights the implications and recommendations for fiscal policy.
