Abstract: This dissertation consists of three self-containted chapters which contribute to different strands of the literature in empiricial public economics and experimental economics. In Chapter 2 we investigate the relationship between macroeconomic conditions and political support for democracy in Western European countries. In Chapter 3 we analyze in a simplified Gift Exchange Game experiment whether and how group membership influences the effectiveness of control mechanisms and under which conditions control can have a detrimental effect on agents’ prosocial behavior. Finally, in Chapter 4 we test within an experimental setting whether asymmetric information influences prosocial behavior in a variant of the Dictator Game.
