    Well, like those in North America, the goldie oldies will just keep working after 65. And why not? If the work isn't too hard, we'll need their experience, and they'll need to keep busy, so as to enjoy a full life.

    It has always been claimed that the very reason they have so many kids is because they have no one else to look after Mum and Dad in the final years.

    Now, together with the rising population is the Chinese imbalance of males/females due to infanticide of the girls, this will darken the Asian horizon even more.
