Valeurs actuelles was founded in 1966 by Raymond Bourgine as an offspring of the weekly Finances, a stock market information review. It gradually became an opinion and generalist magazine with a liberal-conservative tendency.
The main papers of the magazine are the editorial, written by François d'Orcival; the lettre de M. de Rastignac ("Rastignac's letter"), a humour piece about French politics that comments on present politicians by calling them by names of supporting characters from Balzac's works.
Valeurs actuelles is mostly distributed to subscribers.
