Are there any good financial publications in Argentina that go into detail about the economy in the country? Publications similar to the Wall Street Journal, Investors Business Daily, The Economist or even private-type newsletters? Spanish language is okay. Arial

The daily newpapers like Clarin in Spanish and The Buenos Aires Herald in English have financial pages with stock quotes, currency quotes and other basic indicators. Not sure if you access all that info online. I have tried to find a source of inflation data. My biggest fear of moving to Argentina in retirement is inflation. I am about 5 years away from retirement and I fear the cost of living will increase to the point of being prohibitively expensive.

Infobae It has a section for finance and commerce.
For a broader view and reading different sides add:
And the Sunday economic supplements from La Nacion and El Clarin.
The above should give you a good overview...
A reminder: capital markets in Argentina pale in comparison to foreign bursars so don't expect anything like IBD or WSJ. It will be more like a general state of the economy with emphasis placed on grain and cattle activity.

Hello Bill and welcome
Of course infaltion is a fact of life but Argentina's is no more prohibitive than elsewhere. If you are from the US the advantage is you will be drawing US retirement with Argentine cost of living which continues to be about one third of that of the US. Buenos Aires, the city, should be compared to New York for costs of housing. It is not enexpensive compared to some parts of the US but it is certainly lower than US big city costs.
Outside the city I recommend a small town where the cost of housing is much less. You still hear stories about 10 and 12 thousand dollar homes for sale.
But the price is on the rise. Even so it will not on its own reach the US cost of living.
Argentina is a safe and good place to retire for Amrericans and I believe will continue to be so.
