Little Nation, big impact on the world: Japan
Big nation, big impact: the USA

Is Japanese life equivalent to the US in standard of living?
- education / literacy
- health care / longevity
- consumer goods
- employment / unemployment
- artistic expression & achievement
- per capita income

What are the ways in which the 2 nations have a positive relationship?
Are there important areas of disagreement?

What are the symbols that remind us of the identity of these nations?

What can we learn from the Japanese?
