I was wondering whether anyone might have an index of the articles that made up the The Economist's Schools Brief series that ran from 1975 to 1999 (with a brief refresh in 2013)?

They were an interesting set of articles that explained economic concepts (with a free market slant, of course, being The Economist) in an easy and accessible form.

The Economist has some articles online from 1999 onwards: this is a partial selection of some which seemed interesting, though not quite what you are looking for





This clearly misses the older articles. Google turned up

Added: The Economist relaunched the series in 2020, which (including some of those listed above) can be found at


The economist itself provides an overview, although annoyingly it doesn't include the 1999 articles mentioned by Henry.
