Not only globalization, but also technological revolution, which is the material basis of the former, bring about the possibility of a future unified planetary society. At the present state, globalization occurs as a process of wordwide capitalism and brings with it the intrinsic tendency to accentuate social unequalness among countries favoring developed countries to the detriment of undeveloped ones. Facing the process, the national Sates continue to perform a role of primary importance, implementing strategies related to its economic and geopolitical position. It is starting from such premises that we examine here the constitution of regional blocks; the strategies of the most powerful States; the situation of the dependent countries with special reference to Brazil and of the marginalized countries; the emergence of the dinamic area of capitalism in the Far East, with emphasis on Japan, South Corea and Taiwan.
