Diploma thesis covers the field of risk management that companies need to deal with when trading on open account. Basis for this research is the question, whether credit risk management positively influences health of a company and whether credit insurance is effective tool when protecting against credit risk. The subject is firstly discussed in the context of current economic crisis and its impact on entrepreneurial environment, companies' payment behaviour and the volume of insolvencies. Further there are characterized types of credit risk, outlined risk management methods and compared selected instruments used for credit risk protection. Attention is devoted particularly to trade credit insurance. Finally effectiveness and actual usefulness of credit insurance is evaluated on selected models and a case study. Presented case study demonstrates a real life insurance contract and quantifies the cost saving resulting from risk protection through trade credit insurance. Keywords: economic crisis, payment behaviour, insolvency, risk management, trade credit insurance
Public investments and election cycle - microeconomic analysis
Duraj, Adam ; Skuhrovec, Jiří (advisor) ; Gregor, Martin (referee)
The present thesis is devoted to public procurements. Our data set consists of 58 largest municipalities in the Czech Republic and our time period is 2017- 2018. The longer time period is not available in current data sources. We very broadly describe the process of data cleaning a then the creation of our testing data set. The primary aim of this thesis is to figure out whether higher expenses in different types of public procurements (e.g. small-scale contracts in different price limits, soft-service contracts, etc.) lead to a higher or lower probability of mayors' re-election. The regression equation is examined by the ordinary least squares method. We prove the hypotheses about the small-scale contracts in price limits around 6,0 million CZK and 200 000 CZK. These price limits lead to a higher probability of mayors' re-election. Whether mayors spend more through these procurements in these price limits in election year then they have a higher probability that they are going to be re-elected. The hypotheses about the soft-service purchases or about the concluding the amendments are not proved. JEL Classification C12, D72, H57, H72 Keywords public procurement, political cycle
The Value of Political Connections: Evidence from the Czech Republic

The Value of Political Connections: Evidence from the Czech Republic Miroslav Palanský Abstract This thesis estimates the value of political connections in the Czech Republic and it is divided into two parts. The first one explores the recently extended, most advanced publicly available data set on political party financing in the Czech Republic, covering the time period 1995-2015. We analyze basic patterns in party funding and their development over time. We focus primarily on private funding from both legal and natural persons. The data show that there exists substantial heterogeneity in the volume of private funding across parties and over time, but contributions from the government budget remain the most important source of income for all larger parties. We analyze the available data on donations and discuss several issues regarding the notion that donors may view contributions as investment, yielding possible profits in the future. In the second part, we use the data set of corporate donations to construct a proxy variable for political connections and to estimate the effect of being connected to a political party on the financial performance of such firms. We find that the connected firms perform significantly better than the non- connected ones in the years following the establishment of the...
Essays on Health Economics and Health Policy

Dissertation Thesis: Essays on Health Economics and Health Policy Author: PhDr. Jana Votápková Advisor: doc. PhDr. Martin Gregor, Ph.D. Academic year: 2019/2020 This dissertation thesis is a collection of three applied economics essays and a comprehensive discussion essay which includes policy recommendations resulting from the empirical essays included in this dissertation thesis, and other early work of the author. The topics analyzed were motivated by recent Czech healthcare reforms that address the recommendations raised by the OECD. Firstly, efficiency of Czech general hospitals is analyzed stressing the need for a well-functioning DRG system. Secondly, inpatient user charges which were introduced in 2008 and abolished shortly after, are analyzed as a tool which increases private participation in healthcare expenses and thus may boost healthcare efficiency both through additional resources and reduction of excess demand for healthcare services. Thirdly, personal savings, pre-retirement savings in particular, are viewed as another private source which could ease the tight public healthcare and pension budgets. It is shown that health status is a positive determinant for pre-retirement liquid savings, thus preventive health programs should be given a priority within the Czech healthcare system.
