Title: Estimation of the J-curve in China 
Author: Ahmad, Jaleel; Yang, Jing
Date: 2004
Publisher: Honolulu: East-West Center
Abstract: This paper investigates whether a J-curve can be detected in the time series data on China's bilateral trade with the G-7 countries. It utilizes cointegration and causality tests to ascertain the long-run relatedness, and the short-run dynamics, between the real exchange rate, national income, and the trade balance. There is some evidence that a real depreciation eventually improves the trade balance with some countries. But there is no indication of a negative short-run response which characterizes the J-curve.
