Resource description

Over the last three decades, business news has become an area of growth in most industrialized countries. This report, which is part of a Nordic research project on the rise of the business press, describes how the field of business news production has evolved in Denmark. Based on a large quantitative analysis of news content in two Danish dailies, "Berlingske Tidende" and "Børsen", the report first shows how a market for business news has developed, and then shows how the volume of business news has expanded and the content features and formats of business news have changed with the development of the field. The analysis suggests that with the expansion of business news a dual process of professionalization and popularization of business journalism has occurred.
