The paper deals with the following problems: (1) relationship between the dynamic changes observed in an economic system at the disaggregated level and, equilibrium description applicable at the aggregated scale; (2) relationship between entropy maximizing models and behavioral (cost minimizing, utility maximizing) models; (3) the answers are provided in terms of an entropy maximizing probability distribution based on topological characteristics of the dynamic equations (Lyapunov functions).
