This article is dedicated to the problems of management of knowledge economy development at a regional level. International experience shows us successful examples of development of the economy in specific regions and cities. However, there are cases, which reveal the absence of progress in the development of the knowledge econ-omy. The study that we have conducted shows that measurement of the contribution of the knowledge economy to a region’s key performance indicators is the key problem for regional policy makers. The above indicators in-clude gross regional product, labour productivity, the level of salaries, and unemployment. Apparently, the issue of assessment of the knowledge economy is of a fundamental nature. The goal of our study is to review basic models of knowledge economy development, to analyze their evolution and to reveal the dependency of knowledge economy development on the methods and tools of its assessment.

The chapter deals with the regional differences in the structure of motivation of early entrepreneurial activity (opportunity vs. necessity driven) in Russia and the factors influencing this difference measured by an index called the share of opportunity-based early entrepreneurs (SOBE). It is shown that the differences in SOBE levels among Russian regions are statistically significant; cross-regional differences in the SOBE level reflect a certain set of regional social and economic factors immediately or with a short, medium or even long term (10 years) lag. The empirical part is based on the survey designed by the Higher School of Economics which was conducted in 2011 in 79 regions of Russia with a sample of 56 900 respondents. The survey is representative for the structure of the adult population in each of the surveyed regions.
The paper examines the structure, governance, and balance sheets of state-controlled banks in Russia, which accounted for over 55 percent of the total assets in the country's banking system in early 2012. The author offers a credible estimate of the size of the country's state banking sector by including banks that are indirectly owned by public organizations. Contrary to some predictions based on the theoretical literature on economic transition, he explains the relatively high profitability and efficiency of Russian state-controlled banks by pointing to their competitive position in such functions as acquisition and disposal of assets on behalf of the government. Also suggested in the paper is a different way of looking at market concentration in Russia (by consolidating the market shares of core state-controlled banks), which produces a picture of a more concentrated market than officially reported. Lastly, one of the author's interesting conclusions is that China provides a better benchmark than the formerly centrally planned economies of Central and Eastern Europe by which to assess the viability of state ownership of banks in Russia and to evaluate the country's banking sector.
