And le's not forget that Japan is the largest funder for IMF and World Bank. The Japanese government recently signed with IMF to provide $60 billion in emergency loans to the multilateral lender amid the global economic downturn following the sovereign debt crisis in Europe.

Ultimately, all of Asia's economies will stagnate like Japan, but have worthless currencies. Atleast the Japanese Yen can still buy things outside of Japan.
This is very true!

Japan may not have the growth of China etc.. But even one day, sooner rather than later China's economy will slow down.

Japan is the transparently strong nation in the world..

China, but specific parts of China while specific other parts of China I'm not so into. I like a lot of the Yangtze Delta region (Suzhou and Hangzhou especially as historic cities that are still large bustling cities), parts of the Pearl River area like Hong Kong and bits of Guangzhou, Xiamen and a lot of the interior like around Xian and Chengdu. The good parts of China are great, but some of the bad parts just seem awful or really mixed like Beijing which is historic but often unfriendly and environmentally awful.

China's economy is slowing down right now. It's partly planned to prevent it from overheating. But it'll still have adverse effects. It'll still keep growing at 6%-ish, though.

China's economic growth will slow for real when China becomes a middle income economy (it's the middle income curse). The same thing happened with Korea and Japan. China is still a relatively poor country from an income standpoint.
