|Abstract:||This paper estimates a fractional integration model with non-linear deterministic trends for the inflation rates of five African countries. The results indicate that non-linearities are present in the case of Angola and Lesotho, but not in Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. Moreover, the degrees of differentiation are higher in the latter group of countries.|
