August 2008

“Drawing on a decade of experience as a journalist in Latin America, Andrea Mandel-Campbell offers a fresh antidote to this protectionist world view. …Her thesis—that global competition is required for economic success—is on the mark and convincing… Why Mexicans Don’t Drink Molson is a snappy call to arms to all Canadians by someone who is cheering for her home team. …Canadians who believe their country can do better, as well as those who recognize the importance of global competition, should consider this book a must-read.”

Why Mexicans Don’t Drink Molson is a highly readable book with plenty of interesting anecdotes. The text is repetitive, but an extensive case is built for each major point; Mandel-Campbell is not shy about making her message clear. While it delivers some undeniably bad news, Why Mexicans Don’t Drink Molson does eventually come to the rescue. …In a nutshell, Andrea Mandel-Campbell thinks that we’re nice but a little lazy. And she believes that we can do much more with our potential.”

February 2008

“In her provocative national bestseller… Mandel-Campbell argues forcefully that Canadians have been noticeably slow to take advantage of globalization and absent from the rush to export and expand into international markets. The author/journalist maintains that unless Canada starts actively pursuing global markets and building its own homegrown multinationals, its fortunes will slowly decline until it is a ‘have-not nation’.”

“…Mandel-Campbell doesn’t mince words when she outlines what is wrong with Canadian businesses and their lack of competitiveness abroad. Her decidedly Red Tory analysis and solutions can’t help but trigger debate and reconsideration of Canada’s sub-par exporting performance that’s subservient to the American appetite for raw materials.”

“Mandel-Campbell details the staggering number of instances where Canadian companies have blown opportunities to take their goods to the world, either because they didn’t have faith in themselves, or they simply thought it would be too much work.”

“Canada’s current feel-good situation – all those percolating economic stats and indicators – masks a dismal reality. It’s charted in Andrea Mandel-Campbell’s Why Mexicans Don’t Drink Molson. In this, one of the year’s most important books, she makes the cogent case that we’re not hot, not cool. We’re peripheral, a victim of our cult of middleness.”

“Generally, the Canadian food industry has completely missed the boat in taking advantage of the huge and burgeoning Chinese market. …Journalist Andrea Mandel-Campbell may provide a clue in her scathing critique of Canada’s business community… She makes a persuasive case, noting the timidity of Canadian companies that have been spoilt by the proximity of the US, combined with their lack of leadership and vision, which has resulted in a frittering away of our jackpot of natural resources.”

Why Mexicans Don’t Drink Molson is a hit about to happen. Its mix of evangelism, apocalyptic pronouncements and facts should make it a must-read by managers and mandarins.”

May 2007

“Canada sucks. Oh sure, we're nice people, and we produce great hockey players, but let's face it: our best companies just can't compete with the world's best - or even second best. We've become fat on government-sponsored oligopolies and protectionism, and made rich by the world's need for our abundant raw resources. … That's the premise, at least, of Andrea Mandel-Campbell's excellent first book, Why Mexicans Don’t Drink Molson.”
