Globalization is a response of mankind to a decrease in the functions of nation states. The result of this response is the development of a global information society. Following the security measures implemented after 11 September 2011, globalization came to a halt. Although globalization is a turbulent process full of contradictions and dangerous branches, this response is crucial for the future progress of mankind and it needs a new impetus. The spread of a special form of virtual economic zones could provide globalization such impetus.
