Japanese bubble

As Spain did, Japan also had its particular economic miracle.
Starting at the ending of WW II, until the last decade of the 90th's, Japan's economic grow made of Japan one of the most powerful countries. It was even capable of going against USA dominance. Its singular labor market, along its elevated investment registries and its good exportations were subject for studies and analysis.

However, all these solid indicators collapsed in a few years. The 90th-decade brought with it one of the major economic crisis in Japan's history. The Japanese miracle disappeared suddenly as Spain's one did.

Hi Flynd,

Welcome to Lingora! Great to have you here.

This is a fantastic analysis of how a country's fortunes can change so dramatically. The truth is that we never know what is going to happen and this scares me.

Your level of written English is extremely good and there is very little for me to correct. I would just like to add the following points

  • 90th's, - 90s,
  • Japan's economic grow made of Japan one of the most powerful countries - Japan's economic growth [grow is the verb; growth is the noun] made it one of the most powerful countries. [no need to repeat the word "Japan" twice in one sentence]
  •  It was even capable of going against USA dominance -  It was even capable of competing with the global dominance of the USA
  • along its elevated investment registries - along with its elevated levels of investment.
  • good exportations - good exports
  • were subject for studies and analysis. - were the subject of studies and analysis.
  • The 90th-decade - The '90s

As Spain did, Japan also had its particular economic miracle.

Starting at the ending of WW II, until the last decade of the 90's, Japan's economic grow made of Japan it one of the most powerful countries. It was even capable of going against USA's dominance/the dominance of the USA. Its singular labor market, along with its elevated investment registries and its good exportations, were subject for studies and analysis.

However, all of these solid indicators collapsed in a few years. The 90th-decade/the 90's (Probably more natural to say "in the 90's or in the 1990's) brought with it one of the major economic crisis in Japan's history. The Japanese miracle disappeared suddenly as Spain's one did. as did Spain's./just as Spain.

 

Well written overall, keep it up

Well done Flynd.  An interesting illustration of Japan's economy.  My changes are below:

As Spain did Like Spain, Japan also had its own particular economic miracle.

Starting at the ending of WW II, until the last decade of the 90th's, [We don't use 90th.  Instead we say 90s which is short for 1990s] Japan's economic growth made of Japan [You don't need to say "Japan" twice] it one of the most powerful countries. It was even capable of going against USA dominance. Its singular labor market, along with its elevated investment registries and its good exportations, were the subject for of studies and analysis.

However, all these solid indicators collapsed in a few years. The 90th-decade brought with it one of the major economic crisis crises [plural] in Japan's history. The Japanese miracle disappeared suddenly as Spain's one did.
