Business news is the type of journalism that covers the economic and financial changes in societies. It can be found in a variety of media, including print, online, television, radio and wire services. Business journalists may focus on specific industry sectors or may specialize in a particular area of the economy, such as technology, management, human resources, retail or finance. A famous example of muckraking business journalism is the work of Ida Tarbell, who wrote about Standard Oil Co in 1902.
Historically, much business news has been based on speculation and stock market investing. But the emergence of corporate governance and regulatory issues has added new dimensions to the field. Today, business journalists cover a broad range of topics, from the growth of emerging economies to the impact of globalization on world markets.
While some may argue that business should remain in the hands of private investors, others say that businesses need to be held accountable for their actions and responsibilities. Many people believe that companies should consider the impact of their decisions on society and the environment. The concept of social responsibility has become more popular, and many companies now offer programs that promote sustainability and environmental awareness.
A business is an entity that seeks profit by providing goods or services to consumers in exchange for monetary compensation. It can be a company, nonprofit, government agency, or individual. Essentially, any activity that has the potential to produce income qualifies as a business, whether it is selling candy or cutting hair. In addition to earning a profit, businesses also must maintain a legal structure and comply with local, state and federal regulations.
