THE EFFICACY OF DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE IN COMPARISON TO TRADE SUPPOR: Opportunities of the Czech Export Bank to enhance the quality of the aid
Buchlová, Helena ; Kotýnková, Magdalena (advisor) ; Granja, Monika (referee)
This thesis concentrates on the examination of the effectiveness of development assistance and its comparison to the effectiveness of the integration of developing countries into foreign trade. The main aim of this study is to determine, whether the effectiveness of development assistance could be increased through closer interconnection with trade support. Consequently, the possibilities of the Czech Export Bank's participation in such arrangements are examined. The dependence of gross domestic product, gross national income per capita and life expectancy at birth on the amounts of development aid received and on the openness of development economies is measured by Pearson's coefficient of correlation and subsequently compared. All indicators were obtained from the databases of the OECD and the WB. The results showed a much more positive connection between openness and the factors examined than they did for the correlation between the amounts of the development aid received and the same indicators. The investigation in the Czech Export Bank revealed various opinions, it certified, however, that a closer connection between development assistance and the business sphere can be advisable. The support of the integration of developing economies into international trade was proven to be effective in a long run and the resources of development assistance should be used to establish the necessary technological and theoretical background to make it happen.

Neverending african way out of vicious circle of poverty
Schwarzová, Markéta ; Písař, Pavel (advisor) ; Loužek, Marek (referee)
In my baccalaureate thesis I would like to analyze the effeciency of existing develompent assistance to the poor countries (based on Africa). I will evaluate the results of the policy of The International Monetary Fund and World Bank, and review their contribution to the critical situation in these countries. I will also address the denying of the theory of the "vicious circle of poverty" and outlining a possible solution for Africa helping it to fight the poverty -- in the form of microcredits. I would like to emphasize the fact that "develompent assistance " might be a misleading yet powerful term. It is misleading because it is not a voluntary assistance, and according to the latest results it is not even an effective assistance. It is more negative and this negates the meaning of the word " assistance ". It is powerful with respect to a question to whom exactly this "development assistance " helps -- if it is not to the people of developing countries for whom it is intended? And why instead of searching for another way to fight the poverty immense amounts of money are spent although the history proves that this kind of help has negative influence to the economies of developing countries and in reality it harms more than it helps.
