Over the recent years there has been internationally a tremendous increase in the number of people engaged in the very concept of globalization and the economic crisis. This largely prolongs a lot of infertile conflict between some opposing “entrenched camps”, in scientific as well as social and political terms. Unfortunately, this process of thought takes a character, most often, extreme, dogmatic, and aphoristic. This article is structured in a way to:

  • First, unravel the threads of globalization dynamics, of their development and crisis, and to establish a basic analytical framework towards the search for a “new globalization”.

  • Second, investigate the structural socio-economic opposing views of global dynamics (the tug of war between the critical dimensions of Globalization) that advance always in an evolutionary way.

  • Third, based on the available data, evaluate the most significant accomplishments, of every area of interest, which derive from the Globalization evolutionary procedure.

  • In the end, rewrite the main directions that a modern socioeconomic global intervention requires in terms of moving the world system towards a new phase of development, which we call the “New Globalization”.
