The goal is to bring into line the opinion of the scientific auditorium with help of political-economy concept to explain that knowledge economy is not only one of the number of managerial "bestsellers” for the recent times, but the serious trend and base for genesis of the social and economic order of the global world in 21st century, the knowledge society. Knowledge economy as a concept is spreaded crossing the all areas. As its first disseminators were personalities, "gurus” from management world, it seems quite naturall, that its components and proceedings adopts enterprises and uses them in their own practices. But that occurs messy and very often by their experience with trial-and-error method. In case of failure, it is the knowledge management considered as ,,metaphysical” and lost interest. It seems that knowledge management is only the matter of IT and education. Here is focused to explain knowledge economy from the point-of-view of political science and economy. The first man who defined the concept knowledge society was P. F. Drucker in his work The Age of Discontinuity. But the basic political-economy work defining and analysing aspects of formation and characteristics of post-capitalist society became the book of P. F. Drucker Post-capitalist Society, 1992. He analyses not only concepts and characteristics of future new society, but he reflect by their interpreting from present policy aspects and characteristics of social constitution.
