Stakeholders? Why does this phrase annoy me so? In this piece, there is a report of a general meeting with stakeholders? Is it shorthand for people who care? Or for people we are about who might care? I guess it sounds better than relevant elites, but it just does not sing to me. All I can think of when I hear this phrase are either vampires who need some staking or putting up some tents.
Any business-speak of the late 20th century annoy you as much as stakeholders annoys me?
