This paper studies the intertemporal effects of various economic variables on the cameroonian growth. Using a Geometric Lag Model, the authors find out that 50% of the total effect of variables used is accomplished in less than half of a year. When they employ a Polynomial Distributed Lag, they find out that even if investment has a positive impact on growth in the current year, but in the presence of government expenditures, this effect becomes negative after one year due probably to the eviction effect. In addition, they find out that the consumption causes economic growth after three years whereas economic growth causes the consumption after only one year.
