Abstrakt: The present thesis is an empirical analysis of lobbying in the United States. First, it analyses
an added value of lobbyists’ specialisation and connections to congressmen using a method of
matching. Second, it extends the analysis by studying the impact of competition for access to
congressmen on the added value of lobbyists. Third, it analyses lobbying from the point of
view of congressmen by studying the impact of their specialisation on committee assignments
on the amount of campaign financing they obtain from lobbyists. The analysis is done using
data about lobbying reports as well as committee assignments of congressmen and campaign
contributions they obtain from lobbyists in the 106th to 110th congress, corresponding to years
1999-2008. The present thesis also provides a brief summary of related literature analysing
different aspects of lobbying
