Alibaba’s Partnership Structure Keeps Jack Ma in Picture Past 2019 - Caixin Global
While the website states that there are currently 36 partners in the group, Caixin has learned that the latest number is actually 38. One of those is Ma, and each is equal within the partnership with just a single vote, according to Alibaba’s website.

But many of those partners, as well as Alibaba’s board members, will still feel Ma’s influence even after he officially leaves as chairman, said an official at a major global hedge fund, speaking on condition that his name not be used. “Jack Ma’s significance to Alibaba has long surpassed his position. How could the new chairman not listen to him?”

Chinese social media users immediately began predicting that the changes were a sign the government will abolish its existing two-child limit for married couples, and even switch soon to a policy of promoting multiple births...

“In the past, they used whatever methods they could to stop you from giving birth. In the future, they may use the same approach to make you give birth,” Weibo user ZhangyiranMOMO said.

Schönes neues Geld - kommt die totalitäre Weltwährung?
Norbert Häring erläutert Pläne, Akteure, Umsetzungsstrategien und Konsequenzen einer Bargeldabschaffung. Von der finanziellen Totalüberwachung bis zu Möglichkeiten des Widerstands. Herr Häring, vor 2 Jahren veröffentlichten Sie Ihr Buch "Die Abschaffung des Bargelds und die Folgen". Warum legen Sie mit "Schönes neues Geld" so schnell zum gleichen Thema nach? Ist das allgemeine Problembewusstsein noch nicht groß genug, oder kommen die Einschläge näher?

Foreigners Face Paying More Tax in China - Caixin Global
Foreigners who have a residence or reside on the Chinese mainland for more than 183 days a calendar year will be classified as resident taxpayers, subject to Chinese tax on their worldwide income, according to the revised Individual Income Tax Law (link in Chinese) that the top legislature passed Aug. 31.

Those residing on the Chinese mainland for less than 183 days a year will be considered nonresident taxpayers, liable for tax only on their onshore income, according to the revised personal income tax code that will take effect in 2019...

Under current law, foreigners who reside on the Chinese mainland for more than one year but less than five years should pay tax on their onshore income and only the offshore income that’s derived from onshore entities or individuals. In other words, they don’t have to pay tax on offshore income from offshore sources. Those who reside on the mainland for more than five years are required to pay taxes on both onshore and offshore income, no matter the source. This is also known as the “five-year rule.”

China will specify whether it will retain the “five-year rule” when releasing updated implementation regulations for the revised personal income tax code in the near future.

Infrastructure Spending No Cure for Slowing Growth, Top Researcher Warns - Caixin Global
policymakers should lower the country’s growth target, focus on qualitative goals such as jobs and the environment, push ahead with reforms, and boost spending on health, welfare and social security, Liu Shijin, a member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the People’s Bank of China, said at a conference on Sunday.

Although investment in building roads, railways and housing can play a role in preventing a precipitous decline in growth in the short term, its potential to drive economic expansion over the long run has waned, said Liu, who is also a deputy head of the China Development Research Foundation, a state-backed think tank, and deputy director of the economic committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, an advisory body to the country's legislature.
