A vast literature on the social, political, economic, educational, medical, scientific, theological, artistic, spiritual, and philosophical issues of modern times has been discovered in the Archives of the Social Credit Secretariat. Originally published in periodicals and pamphlets during the 1920s, 1930s and subsequent decades, for the first time these articles are being made available electronically. The articles have in common that no social issue can be considered in splendid isolation from the rest: economics, for example, cannot be studied apart from its ethical and political implications. The main periodicals in the Archives include the following:
