Abstract

This research analyses the history of business journalism internationally from its beginning in the first German newspapers in the 1600s to its role in the banking crises of 2008. It charts how it has evolved and critiques its independence from vested commercial interests. It outlines its various branches – newswires, magazines, television, radio, online and trade publications – and assesses the impact and role of each. Finally, it analyses the skills of business journalists, training they receive and environment in which they work. This is done through an in-depth case study of a week in the life of a leading international business editor, Dominic O’Connell of The Sunday Times, one of the world’s most read business sections and an assessment of the key skills involved in business reporting.
