Homeostasis might also imply status quo. but I'm willing to go with stability. While "stable", our economy has been trending towards the upper 1% for a long time. In time honored tradition, the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. A crisis of some sort is on the horizon....the crisis will hurt the poor more than the rich but they will dig out of it, rebuild, work hard to regain what they once had and upon achieving it will realize that once again the rich are getting richer and...you don't need Karl Marx to see a pattern here.
