Post Recession Markets: Fastest Growing vs Fastest Shrinking

LinkedIn and the Council of Economic Advisors mapped the fastest-growing and fastest-shrinking industries since 2007, the year the Great Recession started. Renewables are at the top and newspapers are at the bottom. Here's the graph:

The biggest losers are a combination of recession-bit industries -- retail is down 15.5% and building materials is down 14.2% -- and sectors that were already going through their own recessions before the housing bubble blew up. The collapse of print advertising, for example, is decades in the making. 

The most important story in this graph isn't the trajectory of the bubbles, but their relative size, which represents the number of jobs in each industry. The industries that added the most jobs, according to the analysis, were "internet, hospitals & healthcare, health, wellness & fitness, and oil & energy." The housing bubble industries -- notably, banking and construction -- and demand-sensitive sectors like retail, warehousing, and restaurants, had the worst losses.

Mobile Advertising Forceasts : 2011-2015: US Vs Global

Worldwide mobile advertising revenue is forecast to reach $3.3 billion in 2011, more than double the $1.6 billion generated in 2010, according to Gartner, Inc. Worldwide revenue will reach $20.6 billion by 2015, but not all types of mobile advertising will generate the same opportunity. Search and maps will deliver the highest revenue, while video/audio ads will see the fastest growth through 2015.

"Mobile advertising is now recognized as an opportunity for brands, advertisers and publishers to engage consumers in a targeted and contextual manner, improving returns," said Stephanie Baghdassarian, research director at Gartner. "For that reason, mobile advertising budgets are set to increase tremendously across the various categories and regions, growing from 0.5 percent of the total advertising budget in 2010 to over 4 percent in 2015."
