How is this sentence valid?

Second, globalization doesn’t create a convergent, but a divergent economy.

Shouldn't it be "but it creates a divergent economy"? If this is a valid sentence, and if so, what is this writing style called?

The sentence is perfectly valid: the object is 'economy', not 'convergent', which is an adjective.
