CHAPTER SIX
Implementing Free Trade

ECONOMIC integration can be formalized in an agreement or can occur in the normal course of events. The Canadian and U.S. economies are more integrated, despite the absence of a comprehensive, formal freetrade agreement, than the economies of the United Kingdom and Germany or even those of France and Germany, which have detailed treaty agreements and an extensive bureaucracy for carrying out the Treaty of Rome among the members of the European Community. Canada in an average year sends about 70 percent of its merchandise exports to the United States. In 1979 more than three-quarters of U.S. imports from Canada entered free of duty.1 The U.S. capital market serves Canada as though the market were Canada's own. Canada's overall economic growth and its monetary policy cannot be determined except in relation to what is happening in the United States. The integration is so thorough from Canada's viewpoint that the suggestion has been considered in a standing committee of the Canadian Senate that a free-trade area between the two countries be declared to exist under the rules of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade and then be expanded over time.2 Such a free-trade area would be as real and valid as those among countries of the European Free Trade Association.3
