Stochastic Implications of Orbital Asymptotic Stability of a Nonlinear Trade Cycle Model
R. F. Kosobud, W. D. ONeillThe nonlinear Kaldor theory of macroeconomic business cycles is combined with a classical growth mechanism to derive a deterministic model of business cycle phenomena. Sufficient conditions for the existence, uniqueness, and orbital asymptotic stability of a limit cycle are given. It is shown that the model also exhibits stochastic stability when the deterministic variables are randomly disturbed.
