Cyclicity of Stability in Economy

Cyclicity of Stability in Economy

Journal of Economic Regulation, , Vol. 5 (no. 1),
p. 58-68

The author considers the science problem of a life cycle identification of an economic agent and organizational-economic system. As an alternative solution of this problem the author proposes to use an universal index - stability index, which is directly linked with measure of uncertainty (entropy) and certainty (negentropy). Differentiated life cycle of stability allows us to approach the question of deliberate adaptation to ongoing changes, when control and resource management are done efficiently, in more adequate and, in some cases. The research gives some basic theoretical- methodological assumptions considering the stability dynamics, performs the typification of life cycle of stability, shows the significance of stability over a time horizon.

Keywords: life cycle; fixed stability; uncertainty; comparative stability; synchronous development; stability areas
