Les sources des fluctuations marcoéconomiques au Cameroun

  • ODIA NDONGO, Yves Francis

Abstract

This work aims at analysing the dynamics of macroeconomic fluctuations in Cameroon, using a semi-structural VAR to determine the sources of its macroeconomic fluctuations. The results obtained point out that the macroeconomic fluctuations in Cameroon, even though influenced by external shocks, are deeply tributary of internal shocks, notably on public expenses.
