I think Americans have their priorities correct, and I think this perception of luxury which focuses on quality time and experiences instead of material things will eventually catch on in other parts of the world.  It may take Asia another 20 to 50 years to get there but it will catch on.  I am just surprised that it has not done so in Japan which has been exposed to highly advertised branded goods for decades now.  Basically, Asians still live and breathe a Westernized mentality when people in the West have moved on to the zen like inner peace achieved through unchained materialism that has been promoted by Asian Buddhists for millennia.
