When is the economy full?

Economy - stupid?


It has long been known that the economic department has very poor usage rates in daily newspapers. In this department, the problems with young people in the regional daily newspapers are particularly evident. But those who do not know the "rules of the game" of economics find it difficult to assert themselves in our society. Young people in particular are dependent on business information, for example when choosing a career. The book presents strategies with which type of journalism young people can be interested in the business department. The basis is an empirical study of how students deal with business information. Result: Articles with high utility value and with a local reference are best received by the target group, entertainment or youth orientation alone is not enough. Business journalists can learn from this: The pupils are primarily interested in concrete, usable information. Anyone who relates to the current living situation of the young people can also successfully convey abstract economic topics.
