Read the study parameters. Just because you hate Japanese for historical reasons it doesn't mean they are not superior to Chinese as a working society and as a nation.

Don't shoot the messenger. The study was conducted by the World Economic Forum.

Look at the graph below to see what I mean by "not imitating the U.S.A.":





Now, look at the graphic below to see where U.S. income taxes go (2010) and why the U.S.A. keeps running annual deficits ever since Reagan:






The "other discretionary" includes war spending (Iraq & Afghanistan) which is not part of the "defense" category.

Personal income taxes          = US$ 1.1      trillion
Corporate income taxes        =        0.297  trillion
-----------------------------------------------------------
Total income taxes               = US$ 1.397 trillion


Defense spending               = US$ 0.895   trillion
Other discretionary             =        0.520  trillion
-----------------------------------------------------------
Total military spending        = US$ 1.415 trillion

In other words, 100% of U.S. income taxes (both personal and corporate) is still not enough for U.S. military spending. The U.S.A. has to incur debt just to finance its military spending, excluding all other fiscal obligations such as public education.
This has been going on since Reagan took office in the 80s. That's almost thirty years of deficit spending for the U.S. Military-Industrial Complex which is the number one reason why the U.S. federal debt is slated to hit US$ 20 trillion by the time Obama leaves office.

US$ 20 TRILLION in Federal Debt
With 5% interest on US$ 20 trillion, that's US$ 1 trillion in interest payments alone to the U.S. Capitalist Class.
