The Bush Administration's Politically Correct Stance in Beijing

The Wall Street Journal of Dec. 7th reports "Untranslatable Word in U.S. Aide's Speech Leaves Beijing Baffled" on the strange impact of the word "stakeholder" used by Robert Zoellick, the US Trade Representative. Originally it was used to make claims on corporate governance by non-shareholders such as employees, the "community", consumer and environmental activists. How strange it is that the Bush Administration has been infected by this politically-corrected, left liberal and loaded expression.

Ideas can spread through a society like a virus with words as vectors.
