Subject Description: American Economic Area of the Western Christian Civilisation.

Within the American Economic Area of the Western Christian Civilisation from the point of view of historical, cultural, and economic integration we can identify three areas.

  1. The North American Economic Area: the United States and Canada.The US is the world's political leader and the first global economy. The European Union and the United States account for 50% of the total global gross domestic product. Canada is one of the strongest economies.
  2. The Latin American Economic Area. Latin American countries seek to integrate their economies: the MERCOSUR, the ALADI, the UNASUR, the ALBA, the Pacific Alliance
  3. The Caribbean Economic Area. The Caribbean comprises Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Dominica, Granada, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago. Total population: 15 millions of people. The main process of integration is the CARICOM (Caribbean Community).

Civilisations and integration

Today Christianity is the main religion of the American continent, but in the pre-Columbian Era, there were several Native American religions, many of which have survived. The presence of these religions is evident in countries like Guatemala, Bolivia, Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, and Brazil. Approximately, the Native American population is 50 millions of people.

Finally, it should be noted the influence in many American countries of the African Diaspora (200 million of Afro-American descendants of the 30 million Africans were stolen from Africa and transported as slaves to America). Afro-Americans belongs to the Christian Civilisation (America) but may also belongs to the African Civilisation (included in the vision of the African Union of a United Africa).
