Margaret Thatcher’s free market legacy

ieaTV recently interviewed Margaret Thatcher’s authorised biographer Charles Moore to discuss the former Prime Minister’s legacy. In the video above, Moore provides great insights as to how Margaret Thatcher’s stance on the market economy developed and how she popularised it. He seeks to outline her approach to foreign affairs, in relation to the EU, the US and her broad approach to the Cold War. He then assesses the legacy of Thatcherism and Margaret Thatcher’s own reputation.
