Business news is the area of journalism that tracks, records and analyzes commercial activities within societies. The news is usually based on research, interviews and reporting. It is published in newspapers, magazines and radio and television news shows. It may also appear in online publications. Business news covers the economy, commerce, finance, trade and industry. Most newspapers and magazines publish a section devoted to business news. Specialized publications for certain industries may also contain business news, such as trade journals.
The word business is derived from the Latin verb buxi, which means “to carry on an activity”. This activity may be a commercial or industrial enterprise. The aim is to produce goods or services that meet society’s needs and desires. It is usually a for-profit activity although it can be not-for-profit. It is a legal entity that can be privately owned or publicly held. It can also be a government-owned activity or a nonprofit organization. The size of a business ranges from a small sole proprietorship to large multinational corporations.
