This paper aims to determine whether the global crisis of neoliberal economy (which became transparent in 2008 and lasts till this day) has led to a decline in support for economic reforms and privatization processes in Serbia, and particularly whether this support differs among social classes. The analysis relies on the data obtained within two research projects – Stratification and Value Changes in the Period of Social Transformation (2003) and Тhe New Challenges of Social Integration in Serbia: Concepts and Actors (2012) as well as on national representative samples. It involves examination of the degree of respondents’ support for empirical statements measuring orientation towards economic liberalism (general and specific) and privatization of different segments of public sector.
