Simply called Thatcher, the biography I picked up (there are many) goes over the political life of Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013), Britain’s prime minister from 1979-1990. Her economics are akin to those of Friedman and Hayek. This is the backdrop against which I’ve heard her name arise again and again. But who was this person, this grocer’s daughter?
