Summary/Abstract: The paper considers the problems of the results of the reforms in so called post-comunist countries, they on Washington’s consensus are based. Them caracterise mostly three key points - privatization, deregulation and macroeconomic stability. Except the little cases, this countries realized deep and long-run economic fall, followed by similar processes in other spheras. Contrary to ordinary opinions that tranzition crisis show as result of inconsistency in reforms taking, the paper says this is normaly its result. As an analogue is the Morgenthau’s plan for West Germany observed, that has promoted Germany to industrial disarmament, and that would lead to its poverty and its transformation into raw material basis for the developed economies, and according to these to impossibility of survival of the existing number of population. Fortunately for the Germany, after scrupulous analysis Morgenthau’s plan was abandonen and Marshall’s plan was introduced. It lead to industrial renewal of Germany. For the countries of Eastern and South-Eastern Europe it is necessary the same: abandon neoliberal konception based on Washington consensus and implement conception of industrialization.
