Business news is a type of journalism that tracks, records, analyzes and interprets the business, economic and financial activities and changes that take place in societies. Business news can be found across a wide range of media platforms, from print to radio and television to the internet. Business news articles can cover a broad spectrum of topics, from stock market trends to new product launches.
Business definition: A business is any entity that seeks to make a profit by providing goods and services that people want or need. While profit is a key factor in business, it is not the only consideration. A business may also experience losses from natural calamities or other factors out of its control. In addition, businesses can also engage in barter-style trades with other businesses.
While the idea of making money in exchange for goods and services is nothing new, the practice of tracking this information and publishing it became known as business news after the early 1600s. In that time, newspapers in England and America began running stories relating to the stock markets and business activity. This was followed by the publication of the first ‘price currents’, which listed details of prices available in different areas.
These days, business news is one of the most popular genres of journalism. Major news outlets such as CNBC, Fox News and Bloomberg offer dedicated business programming that attracts huge audiences. In addition, online outlets such as CNN Business and Yahoo Finance have a strong following.
