The upcoming US presidential election is an important one not only for the US, but for the whole world. For Korea, it will determine the economic and geopolitical context of the next four years. It will have an impact on economic policy, diplomacy with Japan, North Korean relations, and how Korea deals with China moving forward. It is also no secret that the outcome of this election could be one of the most disputed in US history. Anything but a clear and decisive win by one of the candidates could end up in court, with the outcome in doubt for an extended time period.
