Business Sector

In economics, the business sector or corporate sector - sometimes popularly called simply "business" - is "the part of the economy made up by companies".[1] It is a subset of the domestic economy,[2] excluding the economic activities of general government, of private households, and of non-profit organizations serving individuals.[3] An alternative analysis of economies, the three-sector theory, subdivides them into:[]

In the United States the business sector accounted for about 78 percent of the value of gross domestic product (GDP) as of 2000.[3]Kuwait and Tuvalu each had business sectors accounting for less than 40% of GDP as of 2015.[4]
