By the end of 2014, five years after the end of the Great Recession, the United States economy regained the nine million jobs it lost. But not all industries recovered equally. On December 26, 2014 The New York Times interactive feature, "How the Recession Shaped the Economy in 255 Charts," published this caption for its chart on the "Digital Revolution":
"Bookstores, printers and publishers of newspapers and magazines have lost a combined 400,000 jobs since the recession began. Internet publishers — including web-search firms — offset only a fraction of the losses, adding 76,000 jobs. Electronic shopping and auctions made up the fastest-growing industry, tripling in employment in 10 years."
