What Is Business News?

business news

Business news is the part of journalism that covers the economic and financial activities of a society. It encompasses a wide variety of topics, from small-town retail and manufacturing to global finance and investment. Many newspapers, magazines, radio, and television-news shows include a business section, and most major websites cover business news as well. Business journalists use research and analysis to provide up-to-the-minute coverage of this fast-moving area of the economy.

The word “business” comes from the root word busy, meaning to be occupied with work or activity. Throughout history, this work has taken various forms: from selling ice cream on the street to managing multinational corporations. A key element of business is to exchange goods or services for money, called “profit.” If this profit is returned to owners it’s known as a for-profit business; if it’s used to achieve a specific goal, it’s known as a not-for-profit. The term “business” also refers to the activity of buying and selling shares on a stock market.
