The article discusses the federalist concepts of the Bulgarian economist Boncho Boev, formulated during the Bulgarian-Serbian rapprochement in 1904. The creation of a South-Slavic State would take place through the economic integration of Serbia and Bulgaria, which, by improving their economic position, would simultaneously strengthen their political situation and join Macedonia. Boev’s views are presented on the basis of speeches given during the Student Balkan Congress in Sofia on 6—8 March (22—24 February old style) 1904, and subsequently published in the Journal of the Bulgarian Economic Society as “Poseshtenieto na Srŭbski kral i srŭbsko-bŭlgarskoto sblizhenie” [The Visit of the King of Serbia and the Serbian-Bulgarian Rapprochement] and “Balkanskata federatsiia kato ideal na srŭbsko-bŭlgarskata mladezh” [The Balkan Federation as the Ideal of the Bulgarian-Serb Youth].
