An appreciation of the somewhat indefinite trends visible in various aspects of Argentina’s economy during 1954 leads to the conclusion that this was a year of transition. On the one hand there were symptoms of a continuance of the preceding year’s inertia and even of certain previous depressive trends. On the other hand, some inflationary features appeared, especially during the first half of the year, and gave rise to expectations of expansion which found expression in greater manufacturing activity and in higher quotations on the stock exchange, where these price increases were at times extremely sharp.
