Abstract This paper studies continuous nonlinear economic dynamics with a continuous delay of a Kaldor type modified in dimension two. The important results are, on the one hand, the boundedness of solutions, the existence of an attractive set, and the permanence of the system and, on the other hand, the local and global stability of equilibrium points. 1. Model The complex nonlinear dynamic has been introduced into the analysis of economic phenomena to explain not only the fluctuations observed in the series studies but also the economic crisis in the capitalist system. Thus, economists such as Goodwin (1967) and Kaldor (1955-1956) have employed dynamic models to explain that the cyclic and chaotic growth curves are the economic phenomena endogenous to the capitalist system itself. Within the framework of structural reforms for economic dynamics, NINDJIN et al. in [1] suggest a proven model originating from ecology which could have a certain range in analysis and regulation of financial systems. This model of dimension two describes how the GDP and an economic capital interact in accordance with the model of Kaldor modified in order to increase the resilience of these dynamics against possible disruptions. Mathematical analysis of this model (see [1]) demonstrates that it is bounded and permanent and admits under certain circumstances an attractive set. On the one hand, this permanence manifests itself in the form of stationary growth of capital stock and product (stable interior equilibrium point). On the other hand, it appears in the capital cyclic growth and the product (limit cyclic). So, a capital stock rupture or a long-term production is prevented. It is also shown that the financial system stability (relative to the capital and the product) is overall; i.e., it does not depend on either stock level or production at the initial time. Facing a possible disruption of one of the control parameters of the economic system, we have analyzed, in [2], the model bifurcations. We have shown that the model admits a transcritical bifurcation, a pitchfork bifurcation or a Hopf bifurcation. In the last one, when the model is disrupted, it changes from a stationary balanced growth to a cyclic growth by preventing a GDP or capital crisis. Interactions between the GDP and the economy’s capital could not be clearly and definitively understood or explained regardless of past situations which may affect the present or the future. In this paper, we are going to focus on the way in which investments are evolved and savings are established. Indeed, economies finance their investments through their own savings or those of other economies via financial structures with an interest rate. Regarding the savings, it is known that they are made up of a portion of profits or wages. Thus, when the economy is able to be self-funding by its savings, then the net profit increases (i.e., profit, deprived of the portion set aside to pay interest, debt, ). So, saving at a time depends on the net profit; consequently, the GDP from a time where Let us suppose that is the deadline needed by this saving to reach a certain threshold likely to ensure the self-financing of the investments of the economy. Let us consider the dynamics with no delay of the modified Kaldor type and the following assumption: with and . denotes the product, denotes the stock of capital, and and indicate, respectively, the growth rate of the product and the stock of capital depending on the following economic parameters:(i) the trend of rate of increase in GDP for a given (future) period in absence (or in neglect) of the losses,(ii) the maximum (monetary) value of GDP we can get from this economy for that given period,(iii) the currency adjustment factor,(iv) the maximum (monetary) value of the genuine saving of this economy for the given period,(v) the maximum (monetary) value of the saving supported by the economy in the given period,(vi) the maximum value of the investment rates losses for the given period,(vii) the maximum capital stock for the given period,(viii) the derivative relative to the capital of the investment rate in the absence (or in the neglect) of the losses (when ) for the given period,(ix) the investment rate when the capital is null () and this rate has suffered no loss () for the given period,(x) the share of the GDP converted into stock of capital for the given period,(xi) the accumulation rate of capital when the product is null () and that the investment rate has suffered no loss () for the given period. (see [1], page 4). Assumption 1. The ratio saving-capital at a given time depends on the GDP produced since with a probability of exponential lag (see, [3], appendix, page 272). So, the ratio saving-capital with delay is with so that . Then, By replacing by , one obtains continuous nonlinear economic dynamics with a continuous delay of a Kaldor type modified in dimension two. Enclosing (1) to the system with a continuous delay, one gets the following system with discrete delay in dimension three: with , , and the feedback function is consequently To facilitate the qualitative study of system which possesses parameters , let us change the variables by reducing the number of parameters. Let us define the new variables: Let us define the new parameters of control: , and Then, system becomes with ∈ and = so that In the long run, we shall adopt the following notations: 2.

Hence, the equilibrium of model is unstable by application of the Routh-Hurwitz criterion.(2)One has . Meanwhile, and, then, so the equilibrium of model is unstable by application of Routh-Hurwitz criterion. 6.2. Local Stability of and We are in the situation where . In order to assess the influence of delay over the local stability of model , we use the results upon the local stability of model obtained taking into model and the results of [5] upon the local stability of the delay systems. Let us consider the characteristic equation (63).(i)One has the following: Then, and do not have any common imaginary roots.(ii)One has the following: and are polynomials with real coefficients so and (iii)If so (iv)Let us pose Then, when Let us consider the function defined on by the following: Let us determine the sign of the real part of a solution of the characteristic equation Lemma 10. Let us consider , a solution of the characteristic equation , with Given positive root of and the associated delay certifying the following relation:Let us pose Then,with Proof. Given positive root of Let us assume that there is a delay so thatLet us poseOne has Therefore, and . Thus, .and, meanwhile, Then, with , = + , = + , = + − − + , and = + + − It is noticed that the analysis of the local stability of the system with delay when depends on the existence of positive root for function The coefficients and , of , depend on Therefore, its positive root depends on Using the Cartan method and Viet formulas, one proves on the one hand that admits at least a positive root if On the other hand, if , then, admits either of two positive roots whereas does not admit any positive root. The condition is equivalent to the following assumption: Let us denote , , and Then, one obtains the following proposition. Proposition 11. Let us suppose that Let us pose and , (1) admits at least a positive root if(2) does not admit any positive root if one of the following conditions is verified:   Now, let us use the results of Theorem 4 from [5] to study the stability of these points of equilibriums and . Theorem 12. One posesLet us consider one of these assumptions (82)–(85) and one of the following conditions:With defined in formula (23), consider the following.

Then, exists so that, for any , admits a positive root (see Proposition 11). Considering the associated delay determined from Lemma 10, consider the following:(1)Let us suppose that one of assumptions (83)–(85) is verified in i=2,3. Then, , does not admit any positive root. Thus, there is no change of stability of the equilibrium (2)Stability of : let us consider that one of assumptions (87)-(88) is verified. Then, If assumption (89) is verified, then, Hence, if assumptions (87)-(88) are verified. Then, let us apply Theorem 4 from [5]. So, let us suppose that . It is known that and so is unstable because for Taking into account the conclusions of Theorem 4 from [5], one obtains the stability of (3)Let us suppose that the assumption of (90) is verified. Then, so Thus, let us apply Theorem 4 from [5]. It is known that when and then is stable if assumption (90) is verified and unstable if not. Taking into account the conclusions of Theorem 4 from [5], one gets the stability of 7. Global Stability of Model Theorem 13. Let us suppose that model is permanent and that it admits a unique interior equilibrium point. Ifthen the unique interior equilibrium point of model is globally and asymptotically stable. Proof. Let us consider model and a unique interior equilibrium point. Let us pose , , and . Then, , , and Thus, Let us denote . Consider Then, . Meanwhile, so the superior derivative of in relation to the time, alongside the solutions of system , gives Let us denote . However, if Then,Let us note . One has and .

So, on the one hand, one has if In addition, Moreover, Then, if So, if assumptions (91)–(93) are checked. Corollary 14. For , if the following assumptions are verified:then, the unique interior equilibrium point of model is globally and asymptotically stable. Proof.

Limit Cycle Let us consider the period and the following control parameters: , , and For the graphic illustration, let us consider the initial conditions , the step , and the numbers iterations of time One obtains the maximum values of , , and : The trivial equilibrium points of the model are , , and In addition, = (2.19899664564055; 2.19198952607149; 0.00121680786072133) is the unique interior equilibrium. So, the illustrating Figure 1 is for the initial time . Figure 1: Trajectories and orbits with , , where if and if (i) Interpretation. The trajectories of GDP and of capital and (the effect of delay) are periodic. The orbit starting from the initial condition gravitates around the equilibrium point without never reaching it. There is, therefore, a limit cycle around this equilibrium point . The orbit revolves around the equilibrium point. They are moving away from trivial equilibrium points and converge towards the limit cycle around Indeed, one has and According to Proposition 11, is the positive root of One has and So, is unstable according to Theorem 12 because for The trivial equilibrium points of the model are all unstable for Hence, we have the graphic illustration. 8.2. Global Stability Let us consider the period and the following control parameters: = (101390.241; 50695.121; 0.5; 1822.498; 1747.022; 1721.154; ; and and For the graphic illustration, let us consider the initial conditions , the step , and the numbers iterations of time From condition (9) of Theorem 4, the system is permanent if , and One obtains the maximum and minimum values of , , and for The trivial equilibrium points of the model are , , and In addition, is the unique interior equilibrium point verifying condition (91)–(93) of Theorem 13.

The border dynamics show that when the orbit arrives in a border plan, it remains and converges towards a corresponding equilibrium point (see Orbit.2 to Orbit.4 of Figure 2). Moreover, the trivial equilibrium points of the model are all unstable. So, the orbits, are moving away from the borders plans and converge towards Hence, is globally stable, which is illustrated by the figure “phase portrait” of Figure 2. 9. Conclusion The economic basic model of our work was one of dynamics Kaldor at an effective growth rate whose rate of saving is the Holling-II type and investment rate is from Leslie and Gower type modified in dimension two. Taking into account the time required for the saving to ensure its self-financing of all the investments, one obtains a model with a delay of the Kaldor type modified. This model is bounded and admits an attractor unit (set). Thus, under certain conditions, this model with delay is permanent. On the one hand, this permanence appears in the form of stationary growth of the capital stock and the product (stable interior equilibrium point) and, on the other hand, in the form of cyclic growth of the capital and the product (limiting cycle). In other words, this permanence avoids a shortage of the capital stock or the long-term production. In front of some other conditions, the dynamic stability with delay is also global; i.e., it does not depend on the level of the capital stock and the level of the production at the initial time. The consideration of the delay (due to the time for the economy to finance investments) can justify the bifurcation of an economic model of the stationary growth towards cyclic growth (see Theorem 12, (a)(i)). However, this delay in the model can stabilize an initially unstable equilibrium of the system (see Theorem 12, (b)(ii)), which represents a major economic interest since it allows the saving to get rid of risks from the cyclic growth.
