Does anybody have a good source for current political/ economic information for what's going on in EC?
OK, here are some info sources on Ecuador. Spoiler alert: with the exception of the last three items, all sources are in Spanish.

General pol/econ news:
1. elcomercio.com (newspaper out of UIO)
2. eluniverso.com (newspaper out of GYE)

Specialized econ news:
1.www.econmonitor.com (Mauricio Pozo out of UIO)
2. www.ecuadoranalysis.com (Walter Spurrier out of GYE, combo pol/econ)
3. Analytica Investments (Ramiro Crespo out of UIO; used to have webpage, but he does a newsletter)

TV:
1. Ecuavisa
2. TeleAmazonas

Radio:
1. RadioVision 91.7 fm, Quito (has GYE affiliate but forget freq)
2. RadioDemocracia 92.5 fm, Quito
Morning talk shows 7-9, 7-10, lots of political/econ stuff, esp. import tariff increases, re-election amendments, etc.

English language info:
1. GringoTree.com, this has almost daily newsletter out of Cuenca, but lots of nat'l info as well
2. Cuencahighlife.com, this comes out as newsletter four times a week, same kind of coverage as GringoTree
3. Latinamericacurrentevents.com, webpage out of Arizona on various countries, produced by Nicholas Crowder, who appears as crowdpub in this forum.


There are surely other sources that others will want to mention, but this should get you started....
