The purpose of this paper is to provide a modeling of the interrelations in talent markets.


This paper uses the graphical presentation developed by J.E. Meade.


It is shown how the development of talent depends on demand and supply, on exchange relations, and on the demand and production structures of the households and enterprises. It is derived from the model that demand for “specific talents” that is typical of highly developed national economies and specialized enterprises can be served more cost effectively by enterprises than by the state and by the households.

Practical implications

This paper shows the influences and interrelations of changed framework conditions in regard to the development and provision of talents for enterprises.


The paper answers questions from entrepreneurial practice, especially for talent and organization management.
