In discrete time dynamic systems that are locally monotone, we show that comparative statics are well-behaved if and only if equilibrium is exponentially stable. In addition, subject to boundary conditions but without local monotonicity, we show that the number of equilibria is finite and odd, and if every equilibrium is stable then there is exactly one. The results, which are applied to best response dynamics and adaptive dynamics, expand the scope of the correspondence principle to include a relationship between stability and uniqueness.
