According to our A-Z Publications search link, we should have electronic access to The Economist from 1988 forward. Electronic access to The Atlantic Monthly (find it listed under "the atlantic") is 1983 to present. There is some embargo (limit) to the currency though. It looks like it goes up to about 5 days ago so that's still very current.
Access is provided through various databases so head to that link and search "economist" and "atlantic monthly" to choose the one that works best for your needs.
