Abstract: This dissertation consists of four distinct empirical studies within the field of political economics. They all deal with either political competition or political reforms. The first study investigates the relationship between divided government and the adoption of economic reforms. The second study shows the relevance of gubernatorial reelection concerns during the US Welfare Reform. The third study analyzes how political competition affects the behavior of German Members of Parliament. The fourth study deals with status quo bias in German voters’ policy reform preferences.
