The Economist: 'What the world needs now is more Thatcherism, not less'

Venezuela is about to elect a new post-Chavez leader. Barring a major upset it will be his heir apparent Nicolas Maduro. On Korea, an analysis in the Jakarta Post argues Beijing has been getting it wrong in its relationship with Pyongyang. Still with Asia, we look at bird flu concerns in China itself. And, The Economist hails the late UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher as a 'freedom fighter'.

The Caracas correspondent for Britain’s The Guardian says Capriles has no chance up against the ‘ghost’ of Chavez.
 
Indonesia’s Jakarta Post has an analysis on Korean tension: ‘North Korea’s step too far?’
 
 
And The Economist has a eulogy to Margaret Thatcher and Thatcherism.
