The consensus of most financial advisors for US retirees is to have somewhere between 20 to 40% of your stock portfolio in non-US stocks.

Since we will retire outside the USA, our retirment portfolio's stock and bond portions are globally weighted. E.g. 58% of our equity port is non-US stocks.

I particularly liked the following article regarding how current US expat retirees are being squeezed hard by current US monetary and fiscal policies. It talks about Costa Rica which is in our top two choices for retirement. The other being Uruguay.
