2 Business is a word, which is commonly used, in many different languages.

3 But exactly what does it mean?


5 Traditionally, business simply meant exchange or trade for things people wanted or needed.

6 The concepts and activities of business have increased in modern times. Today it has a more technical definition.

7 One definition of business is: the production, distribution, and sale of goods and services for a profit.

8 Production is the creation of services or the changing of materials into products. One example is the conversion of iron ore into metal car parts.

9 The products need to be moved from the factory to the marketplace - distribution. Example: A car might be moved from a factory in Detroit to a car dealership in Miami.

10 Sale of goods and services is the exchange of a product or service for money. Example: A car is sold to someone in exchange for money.

11 Goods are products which people either need or want. Example: cars can be classified as goods.

12 Services are activities which a person or group performs for another person or organization.

13 A doctor also performs a service by taking care of people when they are sick.

14 Business is a combination of all these activities: production, distribution, and sale.

15 Creation of profit or economic surplus is a major goal in the functioning of a business company.

16 Profit is the money that remains after all the expenses are paid.

17 Creating an economic surplus or profit is, therefore, a primary goal of all business activity.
