The master plan for merging the U.S., Mexico and Canada is being devised in American University's Center for North American Studies whose faculty is subsidized by the U.S. State Department through the Fulbright Program.Their site is at american.edu/ia/cnas
For example, joining the center this fall as a visiting chairman in North American studies is Canadian Donald Avery, professor emeritus in the history department at the University of Western Ontario. He arrives at American University through the Fulbright Program, funded through the U.S. State Department.
The university's Center for North American Studies is headed by Robert A. Pastor, the architect of a plan for a North American Union modeled after the European Union – complete with its own currency, the Amero, replacing the dollar.
"The Center for North American Studies (CNAS) at American University aims to educate a new generation of students to begin a North American journey comparable to that begun in Europe five decades ago," explains the center's website. "The center examines the differences and shared characteristics of Canada, Mexico and the United States; compares the North American experiment with Europe's; and challenges students and faculty to imagine a continental future."
