We spent a month traveling around Japan this past April and within a day of our arrival, a few things became very obvious:
- There are no fat people in Japan. Everyone looks healthy and well fed, but no one is obese.
- People are neatly and appropriately well-dressed.
- Employees take great pride in their jobs and there is high productivity and very low unemployment.
- EVERYTHING WORKS! The infrastructure is in perfect repair, so people use the underground and there are no traffic jams in Toyko.
Could it be that “American Exceptional-ism” could learn a few things worth copying from the Japanese?
