The next step is a completely chaotic attracting region which fills most of the region around the fixed point. Thus one arrives in successive steps to a whole attractive region in which the phase trajectories appear to move in a seemingly random fashion. 0, one has in Fig. 5 a very stable cycle leading to a fixed point. 8 yields a bifurcation to a limit cycle set (Fig. 6). That such a solution generates a moderate but definite irregularity is shown in Fig. 7. 4, Fig. 8 begins to exhibit such a marked irregularity that it is difficult to consider it a single closed band.

Therefore innovation, by itself, stimulates a boom but also a subsequent collapse. Even this conceals its effect on employment (taking the innovation to be labour-saving). If inputs of labour per unit of output have fallen by 20%, so also will employment have fallen. For the following innovative boom, one may assume a lower employment requirement, but also lower prices, higher real income and consumption. If real consumption per unit of output rises by less than the corresponding fall in labour inputs, there will be a decline in demand per unit of output.

This constitutes a logistic development and there is considerable agreement that this characterizes the typical trajectory of an innovation. Such a course of events is helped by demand effects: some investment must precede the introduction of an innovation; investment stimulates demand; GROWING IN SHORT AND LONG WAVES 43 increased demand facilitates the spread of the innovation. Then, as all the uses of the innovations are fulfilled, the process decelerates towards zero. This explains what Schumpeter called the ‘swarming’ of innovations, though he rejected the demand effects, since, in the neoclassical manner, he assumed full employment throughout.
