GLOBAL NEO-CONVERGENCE OF TRANSITIVE AND TRANSFORMATIVE SOCIO-ECONOMIC SYSTEMS
Abstract. At the new phase of globalization with an increase in the breadth and depth of global integration significantly strengthens the process of neo-convergence of transitive and avant-garde transformative countries which have market-based, but different in the technical and economic level of development and competitiveness socio-economic systems. This complicates interaction and synergistic effects of global co-development. The author proves that all countries: the rich and the poor, over-developed and developing move towards a single global economy, a single global formational-economic system – a World-system of globalizm. Survival and competitive co-development of transitive countries in the World-system of globalizm is directly dependent on success of these countries in competitive dynamic neo-convergence. For transitive countries, neo-convergence with avant-garde countries becomes imperative and is the objective law of co-development and interaction. Only after successful neo-convergence transitive countries can become the subjects and not the objects of geo-economics. The author concludes that the new socio-economic convergence is the most important pattern of globalization and the global economy. Global law of neo-convergence is objective law that affects efficiency of the future global economy.
Keywords: convergence; neo-convergence; socio-economic system; global integration; global competition; World-system of globalizm.
