Business news is any information about the business sector, particularly in relation to economic, financial and corporate topics. It may include articles, editorials and interviews. It is part of journalism, and may appear in newspapers, magazines, radio and television-news programs.
The word “business” can refer to a wide range of activities, from individuals with side businesses to large corporations with hundreds of employees. However, the term typically implies a company that is seeking profits by trading goods or services in exchange for money. If this profit is returned to owners, the business is known as a for-profit company.
In the United States, business journalism is a major part of the media, as is evidenced by the popularity of The Wall Street Journal and other publications. This area of journalism often focuses on the business economy, but it also covers other aspects of society, including public policy and social issues.
A variety of publications, such as the New York Times and USA Today, offer business news. Newspapers and other print outlets, such as the Daily Mail and The Guardian, also feature this content.
The news coverage is often in the form of a weekly or monthly report, which may be written by a team of journalists or an individual reporter. It may also be a live or recorded show or event.
This type of reporting has been around for centuries, but it became more popular in the 20th century as investors began to use newspapers and other publications to track the stock market. It has been said that the newspaper was a major influence on the development of modern capitalism, as it helped people to understand the economic system.
Business news apps supply up-to-date news, opinion and market data for both consumers and professionals alike. They offer real-time stock quotes and analysis, as well as a customizable watch list to keep track of stocks. Some of these apps offer news alerts that are sent to the user even when the app is closed.
