Sustainable Development Through Growth Poles

Propagation of growth and economic power at a global level demands for a collective management of the economic problems, this being, in the authors’ opinion, the most reliable mechanism to approach the issues and challenges brought along by a global multipolar economy. The distribution of the economy growth starts to be a reality at a global level, so that the dominant economic influence of a single country is no longer a reality. The growth of emergent economies turns to advantage the purports of a globalism which increasingly relies on growth and development poles. The global economy has never seen before such large-scale developments. Along the history of economy and economic thinking, the economic power paradigms have been designed and redesigned in terms of the rise and fall of the growth poles with the highest capacity to lead the global growth, and energize other countries with their international commercial and financial activity. This paper aimed to highlight, in the economic integration process, the growth poles in the local and regional economies, as well as certain important economies seen as growth poles for the global economy
