Business news is a genre of news that encompasses a wide range of topics. It includes everything from personal finance to corporate scandals. This genre of news is widely read by the public and is an important part of a well-rounded media landscape. There is some worry that the future of business journalism is at risk, however. This is due to a number of factors, including declining readership and the rise of social media.
The term business refers to any entity that engages in an activity for profit. This may include a sole proprietorship, an LLC, or a corporation. A business may also engage in the exchange of goods or services for payment. This may be done in the form of cash, equity shares, or barter-style trades. A business can be small, like a home-based sewing operation, or large, such as an airline or automobile company. Regardless of size, all businesses are engaged in the pursuit of profit.
A business may also be non-profit, which means that it is not for profit but does operate in order to benefit a particular community or group of people. For example, a school or library may be run as a not-for-profit. While this type of business is not typically considered a “business” in the strict sense, it does serve a public purpose and is therefore a valid business for tax purposes.
Historically, the term business has been used to describe an organization that is involved in commerce, trading, or dealings. The first known use of the term occurred in the 16th century when it was used to describe a merchant’s trade or a bank’s commercial activities. Eventually, the term was broadened to encompass all forms of commercial endeavors.
