As theoretical economist, he is written to the history of czech economic thinking as fundamental thinker; he called his teoretical construction as teleological. Being PM, he belogned to the most active membership of Natinal democratic party, which he represented betwen years 1918-1925, when he gave up his mandate. Engliš was minister of finance three times, and he is written to the history of both – budgetary and tax policy. And finally, he was the second governor of the NBČ during the years 1934-1939.
