INFOGRAPHIC: How Finance is Bouncing Back from the Recession

Joel Anderson |

Of all the industries hit hard by the housing crash, finance is potentially the most affected. Not only were the biggest banks forced to go to the federal government, hat in hand, but the housing market and the home loans and mortgage business that goes with it was crippled.



However, from every valley there's a path back to a hilltop, and the last five years appear to have been just that for the financial industry, culminating with a booming stock market in 2013 and a housing market appearing to finally emerge from its long deep freeze. While market uncertainty is certainly a concern at the start of 2014, the financial world doesn't appear headed for times as bad as 2008 for the foreseeable future.

This infographic from adeccousa.com created this infographic to display some of the data showing just how significant that bounce back has been.
