Pension of €7,000 per month from the EU to Barroso, former chief of EU Commission and now Goldman Sachs top aid 

The European Commission has told the Danish newspaper Politiken that Barroso asked for early retirement pension and that he is now receiving it. Since July, Barroso has been working as chairman of Goldman Sachs International. According to EU rules, Mr. Barroso is entitled to a monthly payout of 7,000 euros, and he opted for that solution after he reached the required age of 60 years this spring.
