One of motives in writing using cause and effect development is to convey information in the form of reports on news or events.

This research investigates the types of cause and effect and the way how to organize it. The purposes of the research are to find types of cause and effect paragraph used by the writers of business column of the Jakarta Globe Newspaper and describe the way to organize it.
