    China is grapling with what to do with the elderly. They even have a draft law about seniors.
    It only took 18 years from China's population to go from being relatively young to being elderly.

    Debate: Aging population

    I doubt they will base their senior citizen care on our system.

    Chinese population reaches preliminary record of 1.34 billion
    Tue, Mar 01, 2011 - China’s population grew to 1.34 billion people last year, the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics announced yesterday, marking a modest jump for a massive population and leading experts to suggest the country could relax its generation-old one-child policy.
