Roman Yevgenovych Zvarych


Introduction.  The article discusses paradoxical dynamics of globalization. Its dualistic political and economic sphere of influence, its ambivalent driving forces and their character are determined. The direction of growing globalizational threats are identified.

Purpose.  The article aims to estimate the dynamics of the globalization phenomenon and to analyse the dualistic nature of its driving forces.

The method (methodology).  The following methods are used in this paper: methof of formalization (to explain substantial knowledge in the paradoxical dynamics of globalization); hypothetical and deductive method (it is used in the process of creation a system of deductively interrelated hypotheses, which are the basis for the statements about dualistic political and economic sphere of influence of globalization)n; method of systematic approach (it is used in context of review the ambivalent driving forces of globalization and their nature); method of hypotheses development (to relate the actuality of development of the world economy alterglobal model).

Results.  The phenomenon of globalization is grounded. Its dualistic political and economic sphere of influence is established. The process of decompartmentalisation of markets is considered.  The ambivalent nature of the driving forces of globalization is determined. Its main weaknesses and threats are defined. The issue of new alterglobal model of the world economy development are actualized.
