The Woman Who Saved Britain

Harken back to the 1970s and Great Britain was wallowing in “The Winter of Discontent,” to borrow a phrase from Shakespeare. The inflation rate in 1975 was 27 percent, the trains were late and the phones were always broken. Nothing worked! To make things more miserable, there were strikes everywhere–strikes by coal miners, doctors, printers and even refuse collectors. Great Britain was a mess!

Enter Queen Warrior Margaret Thatcher. Beginning in 1979, when she entered 10 Downing Street as prime minister, and exited in 1990, she changed everything. Renowned historian Niall Ferguson details how Thatcher saved Great Britain and earned her reputation as one of the most important and influential leaders of the 20th century in this edition of PragerU.
