The paradigmatic evolution of the current period of time shows that science, in general and economics in particular, allows us to build higher and higher ladders to reach the fruits that hang higher and higher. Economic theory tries to explain in this context the recent differences between countries in terms of technological skills, economic convergence in the global model that simply does not exist but is based on the assimilation of theoretical knowledge and technologies from what we can define as foreign countries. The absorption of international technologies, the integration of economies in international production chains become very important in explaining the differences in the growth potential of national economies and both lead to the increase in the possibilities of divergence within the world economies. Humans have limited capacity in the face of technology in many ways and at the same time technological progress is similarly dependent on technological progress and at the same time determines it. Scientific advances and technological changes are important factors of the recent economic performance, which determines a new arrangement of international relations at the geopolitical level. The interest in studying the economy as the functioning of economic systems and as epistemic implications in the theoretical system represents our proposal for debate and research within this module of the scientific conference.
