Diane Francis offers a variety of strategies by which Canada and the USA can regain world economic stability and a more secure future, all of which involve the US "buying" out Canadians for access to its abundance of natural resources for which it lacks the money and labour to develop. While total integration appears to be her favoured approach, other strategies buidling on trade and border integration or a National Federal Council operating like Switzerland's governance and the EU approach are also well argued and to Canadians like myself, probably more acceptable. The research and arguments are convincingly made. ( )

Geopolitics expert and award-winning journalist Diane Francis presents a compelling political argument and business case for merging America and Canada into a geographical, political, and economic superpower. No two nations in the world are as integrated, economically and socially, as are the United States and Canada. We share geography, values and the largest unprotected border in the world. Regardless of this close friendship, our two countries are on a slow-motion collision course--with each other and with the rest of the world. While we wrestle with internal political gridlock and fiscal challenges and clash over border problems, the economies of the larger world change and flourish. Emerging economies sailed through the financial meltdown of 2008. The International Monetary Fund forecasts that by 2018, China's economy will be bigger than that of the United States; when combined with India, Japan and the four Asian Tigers--South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong--China's economy will be bigger than that of the G8 (minus Japan). Rather than continuing on this road to mutual decline, our two nations should chart a new course. Bestselling author Diane Francis proposes a simple and obvious solution: What if the United States and Canada merged into one country?… (more)
