Margaret Thatcher, RIP

A couple links on Prime Minister Thatcher, who passed away today:

Tributes (and a few condemnations) from world leaders, including a touching tribute from President Obama.

-Ira Stroll on Thatcher’s ecoomic accomplishments.

-While crediting her with genuine market reforms, Jesse Walker adds “Thatcher’s emergence as a symbol of the transformation was a matter more of cultural perception than political reality.” It’s a similar conclusion I draw from Reaganomics, which I’ll expound upon in an upcoming post.
