Summary/Abstract: The Serbian system is collapsing. In case the same economic experts continue to lead the country, we cannot expect any changes. The country may only face a more serious disaster. It is terrifying that today politics is understood as an opportunity for individual progress and advancement. There are no desires to change the entire society. As a result, unemployment has reached its highest level, poverty is growing and a certain number of powerful people are getting richer. Morals no longer exist in Serbia. This situation has become even worse because of the Serbian experts who bring the country and its population into debts and, at the same time, proclaim reforms that are presently of cosmetic nature only. It is necessary to start immediately with true reforms and to stop running into debts. Otherwise, the new upcoming crisis with public debts and illiquidity will push the country to even deeper economic and social hopelessness. Such reality will scatter the illusions about the European dream.
