Abstract

In this paper, we estimate, over the period 1980 – 2001, in annual data, the size of distortion (misalignment), of Cameroon’s real exchange rate. This, in the goal to judge relevance of the decision of January 11, 1994, to devaluate of 50% Franc CFA (Fcfa) compared to the French franc (FF). Our results seem to confirm the idea established well today in the literature, of Fcfa overall overvalued during the period having preceded the devaluation.
