"Manzella's Global America is an eminently readable and realistic analysis and appraisal of America in the future global economy. While policy is never far from the main discourse, the cherry on the Sundae is his ability to single out key trends and make them meaningful to each us whether we are involved with marketing goods, managing supply chains, investing our savings, or raising our children."
- Larry Davidson
, Professor Emeritus of Business Economics and Public Policy at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business
"John Manzella's book Global America is just the right antidote for the misguided belief that Americans cannot prosper in a global economy. Based on thorough research and his years of experience in global consulting, Manzella explodes myth after myth about such charged topics as immigration, NAFTA, and trade with China. His prescription of more open markets, property rights, the rule of law, and education and tax reform points to a brighter future."

, President of the National Association of Foreign-Trade Zones
"In Global America, John does an excellent job of providing a timely snapshot of America's competitive position vis-a-vis the global economy — 15 years into the 21st century. This book provides an island of context in an all too temporal sea of tweets and spin."
