Abstract. The global financial and economic crisis that began in 2007 in the United States, the main center of capitalist accumulation from the second half of the 20th-early 21st centuries, once again pointed out to the academic community on the continuing relevance of the research of the cycle/crisis tendencies of development of the now globalized capitalism. In addition to the scientific and educational tasks of the exploring of this topic there is an urgent challenge to design a theoretical model of efficient management systems (including anti-crisis management) for the global economy. Such a model will form the basis on which the new system should be established and become virtually operational. To build such a model we have to primarily identify the regularities of functioning and development of the global economy, as well as those of its variables should be affected within the simulated regulatory system.

Keywords: global economy, systemic accumulation phase, financial cycle of expansion, mobile capital, international capital mobility, global crisis
