Are the integration processes in North American countries viable after the 1929 economic crisis? This paper draws on the hypothesis that economic crises were the main reason for the long-term involvement of the United States (US) in the complex process of inter-state co-operation, particularly with Canada and Mexico. The subject of the paper are integration processes among North American countries before and after 2016. The purpose of the paper is to point to the fact that after the economic and migration crisis and from the 2016 onwards, the co-operation continued despite the altered US political climate. The worrying persistence of radical rhetoric in the US can call into question integration processes as well as the development of capitalism and democracy.
