32 Economic Dynamics This is effectively a stock-adjustment model. Stocks (inventories) change accord- ing to the difference between supply and demand, and price adjusts according to the accumulation–decumulation of stocks. Thus, if i ( t ) denotes the inventory holding of stocks at time t , then di dt = q s q d i = i 0 + ± t 0 ( q s q d ) dt and prices adjust according to dp dt =− α di dt =− α ( q s q d ) = α ( q d q s ) α> 0 which is the third equation in the model. Substituting the demand and supply equations into the price-adjustment equation results in the following Frst-order linear nonhomogeneous differential equation

Some typical solution paths are illustrated in Fgure 2.3. We shall discuss the stability of such systems later. Figure 2.3....
