The problem with socialism

A quote attributed to Margaret Thatcher goes along the lines of

<dl><dd>"The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money [to spend]."</dd></dl>


<dl><dd>"Eventually, Socialists run out of other peoples' money [to spend]."</dd></dl>

There are a number of similar almost-quotes to be found on the Web, but I haven't found any authoritative sources. She may, in fact, have made the statement in various forms at different times. QuicksilverT @ 15:44, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

 Update: Margaret Thatcher, in a TV interview for Thames TV This Week [[1]]on Feb. 5, 1976, Prime Minister Thatcher said, "...and Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They [socialists] always run out of other people's money. It's quite a characteristic of them."

The popular version seems to be a reasonable contraction.
