Whereas Japan has never had a "revisionist economic agenda" concerning, say, it's agricultural market.

"leader of liberal order" Interesting. In todays New York Times, there is an opinion piece that says Abe has been moving Japan more towards a "decidedly authoritarian turn". Liberal or authoritarian? Who is right?

I stopped reading when NK ranked higher than Japan militarily....

Lists and rankings when on the news, really should be more objective.
