|Abstract:||The dissertation thesis is a collection of essays on topics in public economics and political economy, attempting to reveal complexities and heretofore neglected or paradoxical effects of rules, procedures, and policies. Richness of contents (fiscal policy, centralization, evolution of preferences, banking socialism, and public sector efficiency) is unified by the underlying approach of classic and evolutionary game theory. Each essay addresses a particular problem, typically conjoint of the political
economy and public economics. Overall, the dissertation reveals how procedural fiscal rules may harm, why centralization may matter even for complementary public goods, how banking socialism arises with retrospective voting, why intolerance is constitutionally tolerable, and concludes that public sector efficiency measures are not robust for the Czech Republic.
