Cyclic Growth and Global Stability of Economic Dynamics of Kaldor Type in Two Dimensions
This article proposes nonlinear economic dynamics continuous in two dimensions of Kaldor type, the saving rate and the investment rate, which are functions of ecological origin verifying the nonwasting properties of the resources and economic assumption of Kaldor. The important results of this study contain the notions of bounded solutions, the existence of an attractive set, local and global stability of equilibrium, the system permanence, and the existence of a limit cycle.
The nonlinear complex dynamics have been introduced in the analysis of the economic phenomena to explain on the one hand the fluctuations noticed in the study of the chronological series and on the other hand the economic crisis in the capitalist system. The economists Goodwin (1967) and Kaldor (1955-1956) used the dynamic samples to explain that the graphs of cyclic and chaotic evolution are endogeneous to the economic system itself.
To simplify things, a great number of these models have been elaborated with more restrictive assumption such as linearity. The challenges of structural reforms of dynamics justify the fact that mathematicians are interested in them. Our contribution will thus consist in proposing economic models inspired by the ecological models whose lessons may be important in terms of analyzing systems and their regulation in this context of climate protection (cf. [1, 2]).
The basic economic models that we use in this article are those of Kaldor proposed in the works of Hans-Walter Lorenz (cf. ).
Our study will consist first of modifying the models of Kaldor conferring them with the ecological properties adapted to economy. Therefore, we propose a dynamic model typical of Kaldor-Holling-2 and Leslie-Gower with some modifications. Next, we will study the qualitative comportment of the model at level 2. We set criteria for which we have on the one hand the marking out of the solutions and the existence of an attractive set and, on the overhand, the local stability of the equilibrium and the permanence of the system.
At last we study the global stability of one interior equilibrium through the construction of the Lyapunov function.
2. Dynamics of Kaldor Ecologic in Two Dimensions
2.1. Economic Dynamics of Type Kaldor with the Effective Growth Rate in Two Dimensions
Let us start by giving the notations and definitions of the rates of parameters and functions in applied economies.(1)The productivity of capital is the quotient of the GDP by the capital . We set that .(2)The rate of investment is the quotient of the investment by the GDP. We note that .(3)The saving rate of the GDP is the quotient of the saving by the GDP. We have .(4)The rate accumulation of the capital is denoted by .(5)We design, respectively, by and the monetary depreciation rate and the monetary adjustment coefficient.(6)The ratio saving-capital will be noted as .
Let us consider the original model of Kaldor (cf.  page 44):
In order to establish a connection between the economic models of Kaldor and the ecological patterns, let us give up the coercion of monetary scales by writing investment and saving functions in relation to the investment rate, of capital and saving hoarding. Let us also replace the growth rate of the GDP of model (1) by its effective growth rate (cf. [3, 4]). Therefore we get the following assumption.
Assumption 1 (Kaldor with effective growth). (1) Effective growth with the coefficient of monetary mending, and the tendency, , such that .
(2) The ratio saving-capital, , is a function verifying
(3) The investment rate is a function verifying and there is a threshold so that .
(4) The accumulation rate of the capital is a function verifying ,
With Assumption 1, we get below the dynamics of Kaldor with an effective growth rate whose and can have ecological properties.
Interpretation. The dynamics of Kaldor with an effective growth rate (2) present some similarities to the classical ecological dynamics. The function define the action of the capital upon production . It stimulates the increase of the production when the investment rate is superior to the saving rate and stops it in the end.
The function defines in its part the action of the production over the capital. The economic model alone summarizes two types of ecological interaction such as mutualising type and the prey-predators type. Let us consider the economic assumption of ecological inspirations on investment rate , the rate of capital accumulation , and the ratio saving-capital .
Assumption 2. where
Obviously, the investments are first funded by capitals. We can thus suppose that . Next, the investors adjust the rate in relation to the realities for they hate to invest in vain. However it is not necessary to invest more when net profit is beyond expectancies. Let us estimate the losses of the investment by using the function , where is the maximum value of the losses of the investment rate and is the maximum value of the stock of capital. Then we get . For simplicity, we can take , where and are the constants depending on the economic policies of investments. Then, we get a rate of investment that verifies the economic requirements (5) of Assumption 1.
Suppose now that the tendency is linear and decreasing: . In fact, the tendency of the growth rate of GDP is at the start, a constant for a given period (forthcoming). But it faces some losses due, for example, to corruption, bribes, slush funds, tax haven, whitening of fraudulent funds, manipulations of accounts and media, and any other harmful activity to the growth of the GDP (cf. , pages 11, 15-16, and 35–65). Those losses are estimated to with the maximum value (monetary) of the GDP that we can get from this economy for the given period.
Then, model (2) becomes the economic dynamics: with and . indicates the product and the stock of capital, and and indicate, respectively, the increasing speed of the product and the stock of capital.
System (6) defined in this way is a more realistic system. It takes into account a great deal of economic observations of interactions between the product (GDP) and the stock of capital of an economy; namely,(1)in the absence of the stock of capital, there will not be any explosion of the GDP because the increase of GDP becomes logistic so that, despite the technical progress, the economic production remains limited,(2)in the absence of the production of the GDP, the economy will not be in short of capital if because the evolution is as well logistic due to the diversification of the economy or the opportunities to convert a stock of physical capital in the stock of monetary capital,(3)when the production (GDP) becomes abundant, there is a “saturation” of the ratio saving-capital and of the investment expressing the adoption of a nonwasting policy of the economic resources,(4)when the production of the GDP is insufficient, the ratio saving-capital gets adapted and becomes proportional to the available GDP in order to avoid a shortage of production.

5. Local Stability and Permanence of Model (9)
In this section, we first define the conditions in which this balanced growth of the product and the stock of capital of the economy are stable or unstable. Then, let us examine the possibility of having permanently those two parameters of the economy (sustainable development). This permanence of the product and the stock of capital of the economy are noticed either through the convergence (of both parameters) towards a stable equilibrium or through a fluctuation of both parameters around an unstable equilibrium, that is, the convergence towards a limited cycle.
