Croissance Economique et Marché du Travail au Cameroun
[Economic Growth and Labour Market in Cameroon]


  • Yogo, Urbain Thierry


How do Growth affects labor market’s work? This question is important, because, labor market plays a key role in determining the success of poverty reduction policies. Using the times series data, we have been able to confirm the prediction of theory which present a positive effect of growth on the labor market’s work. However, this effect is not strong, and calls to the reinforcement of growth and the set up of pro investment incentives as well as in the level of good and knowledge production.
