and the basis for the economy on a local, national, and global
scale. They may provide consumer products, consumer services,
durable goods such as refrigerators and televisions, capital goods such
as machinery and commercial vehicles, raw materials such as wheat and
corn, semi-finished goods such as computer components, finished goods
such as cars and trucks, or business services such as insurance and
banking. Business has always been strongly influenced by the
economic climate and world events. In turn, the health of the
business sector greatly influences the economy.
