ABSTRACT This article is devoted
to the research of theoretical and methodological aspects of economy of
knowledge formation. The emphasis is laid on the evolution of knowledge as the
main reason of any changes which take place in the society. Scientific knowledge

conception of economy of knowledge is suggested. It is based on three main
principles: 1) the unity of economic field; 2) preferred development of
spiritual production; 3) accordance of controlling mechanism and effectiveness
exponents to the peculiarities of goods of any production.
