English term or phrase:stock-rich
This is a significant turnaround. In the 1980s, tourism and real-estate construction was driven by stock-rich Japanese investors. But after the Japanese stock bubble burst in 1990, the Japanese reduced their visits and investment in Hawaii. Making matters worse, the Defense Department cut back in the state. Between 1992 and 1996, Hawaii lost 14,000 jobs, while the rest of the nation was growing. Unemployment was stubbornly high and young people were fleeing the island looking for work.
