Mario Monti on Margaret Thatcher's clarity of vision

Among those attending former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's funeral was Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti, a distinguished economist and Brussels veteran who was drafted in as Italy's prime minister amid high political drama and financial uncertainty in late 2011.
