Thatcher’s Sin

Margaret Thatcher is today being blamed for the economic crisis because of the “selfishness” of her policies from 1979 to 1990. Yet the fact is that public spending (health and welfare) rose 32%. Her sin was to simultaniously increase the private sector at an even faster rate, making public increases less in comparison to private increases. She helped the country that her opponents had almost succeeded in destroying. Wealth and freedom are not in the interest of collectivists.
