China is watching Taiwan’s next presidential race closely. The results will influence Xi Jinping’s next steps when it comes to resolving the “Taiwan question”.  Ahead of the vote on January 13th, Alice Su, our senior China correspondent, goes to campaign rallies of the 3 parties in the race. We meet voters, young and old, who each have a different idea of who should win and why. Together with David Rennie, our Beijing bureau chief, they ask: is the election of Taiwan’s next President really a choice between war or peace, as some candidates are saying? If you’re interested in Taiwan, listen to our four-part series on the future of the island.  1. What does Taiwan want? 2. How strong is Taiwan’s silicon shield? 3. Is Taiwan ready for war? 4. Could China take over Taiwan without force? Sign up for a free trial of Economist Podcasts+.
