The Economic Observer is using this image as a logo for its feature section on the current NPC and CPPCC sessions.

It analyzes the ubiquitous buzzword "harmony" 和谐 according to the following formula:

和:禾+口,人人有饭吃
grain + mouth, everyone has enough to eat

谐:言+皆,人人能说话
speech + all, everyone is able to speak
