Business News Sources at the Library of Congress

business news

Business news is a form of journalism that focuses on the world of commerce and economics. This news is often published in newspapers and magazines, as well as on radio and television. Business news covers a wide range of topics, from national economies and financial markets to specific companies and industries. Some of the more popular business news sources include newspapers, radio and television news shows, and online publications.

The term “business” can be used to describe any activity or enterprise that is undertaken for profit, such as a company that produces and sells goods, provides a service, or invests in real estate. It can also be used to refer to a company that operates a store or restaurant. In these contexts, the phrase “mind your own business” means to refrain from interfering in the affairs of others.

In addition, the guide provides links to major international business news sources.
