What Is Business News?

business news

Business news is the area of journalism that tracks, records, analyzes and interprets the commercial activities and changes that take place in societies. This type of news covers both public and private sectors and encompasses commercial, industrial, professional, and financial topics. It is considered to be a crucial component of the overall economy.

Generally speaking, a business is any organization or enterprising entity that organizes some sort of economic production and/or exchange of goods and services to fulfill a need. A profit-oriented enterprise is known as a for-profit business; conversely, a non-profit may invest all of its profit back into the company or use it to further a specific social cause. Businesses range in size from sole proprietorships to multinational corporations.
