Abstract

The highlight is the better understanding of knowledge as an economic research object. Therefore the relevant sources are interpreted. It is characterised as an economic category based on types of knowledge important for the economic development. They are matched in dichotomous combinations (such as scientific – daily routine, theoretical – empirical, codified - tacit). The specific characteristics of knowledge as an object of economic research are the personalization, mobility, risk-sensitivity. The common and different facets among information, scientific and technological knowledge are specified. From the historical point of view the experience in statistic monitoring and rating is evaluated systematically, being of vital importance for the economic characteristics of knowledge. The present day issues are focussed. The aspects of the application in practice are discussed in view of the critical review and the systematization of the concepts of a strategy for the socio-economic development.
