The Art of Business

Business news is the area of journalism that tracks, records and analyzes economic, financial and commercial activities and changes in societies. The field of business news is a significant part of journalism and the major newspapers, magazines, radio and television news shows include a section dedicated to it. Its history dates back to 1700 when Daniel Defoe, best known for his novels such as Robinson Crusoe, started publishing business news.

Business can be defined as an activity that involves systematic production and exchange of goods and services with a motive to earn money. The activity should involve an element of risk and uncertainty in order to be considered a business. A single transaction cannot be considered a business, it should be repeated on a consistent basis. It is also important for a business to be distinct from other occupations such as charity work or nurturing one’s own farm for personal consumption of the farm produce as these are not economic activities.
