The Jan. 11 election outcome will have a profound effect on foreign policy strategies and relationships between Washington, Beijing, and Taipei throughout 2020 and beyond.
The stock market and wages are important means to an end. But though the market is booming now, conservatism doesn’t fail if it drops.
