Business news is the area of journalism that tracks, records and interprets commercial and economic activity and changes in societies. This area of journalism can be found in newspapers, magazines and online. It may focus on large businesses, small businesses and everything in between. It can cover a wide variety of topics such as the stock market, corporate reporting and entrepreneurship. Many major newspapers and magazines include a section dedicated to business news. This type of news can also be found on the website of television and radio broadcasters.

The term business can refer to any type of company or organization that produces goods or provides a service for a profit. Some examples of a business might be a retail store, restaurant or a manufacturing plant. A business can also be a service industry such as law or healthcare. The earliest form of business news began in 1700 when Daniel Defoe published his novel Robinson Crusoe. Later, in 1882, Charles Dow and Edward Jones started a financial news wire service that would eventually become The Wall Street Journal. Muckraking journalists like Ida Tarbell were instrumental in helping to spur on the growth of business journalism in America.

Financial news is a key aspect of business news that is often analyzed and scrutinized for its effect on investors, trading and transactions. This type of news can be found in a variety of formats including articles, charts, videos, podcasts and broadcasts. It can also encapsulate larger trends in the financial world such as government policy and other legislation that affects investing and trading.

In addition to general business news, there are a number of different types of specific business niches that can be followed as well. For example, art business news can be an important resource for those involved in the art industry. This type of news can provide information on upcoming exhibitions, new art acquisitions, auctions and other related events. A business news section on an online art gallery’s website can be a great way to increase traffic and visibility for the site.
