Automation is the key word of this century when it comes to describe sustainable development, social evolution, economic empowerment and ease of access to new business solutions. In this paper we try to analyse and re-establish the need to develop, not only as societal and human evolution, but also as a standalone process that shows us that the actual acceleration of automation in everything that surrounds us is actually the next generation of globalization. We also try to analyse the psychological pressure developed of automation and the fact that if we’ll reach an evolutionary ceiling and if it will be followed by a new disruption in the way we see economics. As a research method, we used a mix of methods combining quantitative and qualitative analysis. The main findings have allowed us to highlight the trends in the literature in terms of automation in the era of globalization as well as new practical directions of action. Beyond the pros and cons of globalization, our work allows readers to find new business solutions that contribute to a sustainable development of society, a healthy social evolution, and last but not least an increase in economic power taking into account the risks associated with these changes, including psychologically.
