Abstract. This paper analyzes theoretical and methodological grounds of geoeconomics as the extended arm of geopolitics and post-industrial development paradigm. The article selects its basic semantic components, terms and definitions, and explains the geoeconomic character of neoliberalism. The authors suggest a new term - the neoliberal geo-ideology. The influence of geoeconomics in the countries of South-East Europe (SEE) is demonstrated, and the destructive effects of neoliberalism, which serves as the official economic policy in SEE are discussed. The conclusion verifies the starting hypothesis noting the need for abandoning neoliberal economic policies in the SEE countries as such.
