Design/methodology/approach - The methodology is based on the most recent development in asymmetry cointegration and error-correction modeling. Findings - While the authors find short-run asymmetric effects in many of the countries in their sample, asymmetry cointegration yields support for the new definition of the J-curve in Algeria, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Morocco, Tanzania and Zambia. Originality/value - This is the first study that applies nonlinear ARDL approach of Shin
