The article discusses methodological issues related to the appearance and use of convergent technologies that determine the modernisation of the economy. The problems were examined from the point of view of conceptual approaches to the main economic paradigms. The hypothesis has been nominated, according to which convergent technologies form economics, business behaviour, management, production and consumer culture models and agendas. The article was based on the provision under which convergent technologies deepen and strengthen the leading positions of developed countries and major transnational companies through the formation and networking mechanisms of added value chains.
