    While it is admitted that Japan is an advanced country and practices super hygiene, there are something need to be noted.
    1) Japan has the second highest national debt in the world. It is said that Japan no longer can pay its debt. They are also struggling in paying interest.
    2) Due to stiff competition from China and South Korea, Japanese companies are facing very tough times.
    3) Although hard work and productivity is important, the human aspects should not be forgotten. Suicide?
    4) If too much emphasize on hygiene, it may not bear much is item (2) above is not being tackled. In other words, if companies could not sell their items, having extreme hygiene may not benefiting.
    5) Etc.

    I am not against Japan but its borrowing is quite high. They need capital to develop/improve technology. Otherwise, they will have trade deficit. A country should not be too dependent on debt. In a long run, the country (or companies) will suffer. Economy should be based on the actual money a country (or companies) own. They should not trap in obligation to pay debt. In Malaysia, many car loans are taken till 9 years. In the USA, people will frown if one take 5 year car loan (it should be shorter than that). If one cannot pay the loan in 5 years, one actually could not afford that car. But looks like image is more important than affordability.

    Overall comment, Japan also has its negative perspectives and debt may not be the right way to simulate economy.
