I have had several articles on this and my prediction has also been that Ma Ying-jeou will win. I think this is a route to less tensions between China and Taiwan and will take the possibility of China invading Taiwan pretty much off the table. The steadily weakening US dollar is continuing to keep my prediction that Chinese will pass the US economy on an exchange rate basis in 2018 plus or minus three years on track. Originally had it at 2020 but have updated it based on recent trends.
