The objective of this article is to question the economic growth of China and Cameroon through the prism of culture. These two countries are certainly geographically and culturally different; but, they are historically close given their colonial experience and the division of their respective territories according to the Treaty of Versailles of 1919 which forced Germany to yield its concessions to its French and British Allies. Today, these two countries have an uneven economic evolution, for one reason: one was able to fight to introduce its culture in the adoption of the economic policy of the country; while the other resigned himself to being unable to choose a culture other than that of the foreign imperialist powers. This article, based on a historicocultural reality, highlights the enriching contribution of culture in the adoption and implementation of economic policy and informs us about the failure of these policies and their consequences for countries that strive to ignore their culture.
