Summary/Abstract: Someone outside who found himself in the Yugoslav capital in the spring of 2001 will easily notice a few new things. In exchange offices - a new dinar exchange rate (instead of 20 dinars as much as one year earlier, now it is paid 30). In stores - new prices and evidence of scarcity. In newspapers stands - new newspapers; the fall of Milosevic at the same time led to the incredible decline in the news that his regime supported: from "Politics", respected for its tradition and professionalism, to the low-pitched „24-časa“ newspapers intended for the narrow circle of readers. National television station, the RTS, bombarded by NATO, now demonstrates a pro-European spirit. On the streets, clothing that the citizens wear reveals growing financial difficulties.
