China to allow some foreigners to retire there

-1st our jobs. 2nd our entrepreneurs. Now our retirees!?

(Reuters) - China will allow some foreigners who sign up to a new social security system to retire there so they can claim their pensions, state media said Thursday, offering details of a new tax that foreign businesses fear will push up costs.

To a reader in China, Havel's focus on the symbolism of "special farms" has a certain resonance. There are few issues more deeply and universally felt in China than the safety of its food; after years of scandals on cooking oil sifted from gutters, glow-in-the-dark pork, deadly infant formula, and so on, it has become a proxy for fraying public trust in the system to put the public interest above all.
