The North American Idea

Robert A. Pastor

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a review of the stereotypes that characterize Americans, Canadians, and Mexicans. It then addresses the question of whether Canadians and Mexicans are anti-American, and whether Americans dislike or have little respect for their neighbors. This is followed by discussions of public opinion on NAFTA and free trade; the existence of the North American identity; whether the US, Canada, and Mexico want to collaborate in new and different ways to promote shared interests; and the factors behind the public support but inhibited leadership for North American integration.

Keywords:   NAFTA, North American Free Trade Agreement, Canadians, Americans, Mexicans, free trade, North American identity, integration
