User notes for this item

In this recording, a pre-Prime Minister Thatcher talks about the economy. One notable comments she makes is on thrift and debt, pointing out that in order to borrow money, somebody else has to have saved it. The current (2009) recession has shown that this is an simple truth that banks ignore to their cost. The audio levels on this recording are low.
