Abstract

How did a small-town grocer’s daughter become the Iron Lady? She is the first to bury the Welfare State, and to give rise to popular capitalism. She defined the liberal economic agenda which prevails on the planet. She was British prime minister for 11 consecutive years, and in that time, she created a name for an economic movement that has changed our world: Thatcherism. This film neither intends to describe the three successive terms of the “Iron Lady” nor to check the outcome of her action. Rather it goes back to the source of an exceptional destiny.
