English term or phrase: biz and buzz
Hola,
"This is a problem denied both by development biz and by development buzz. Development biz is run by the aid agencies and the companies that get the contracts for their projects. Development buzz is generated by rock stars, celebrities, and NGO's."

How is 'biz [business] and buzz' usually translated? Could you please help me find an equivalent that would suit the context?

Thanks a lot.
