The United States
Writing at the end of the 1980s, at a time of Thatcherite dominance of state policy in the UK and Reaganite dominance in the USA, Professor David Smith (Social problems and the city: new perspectives, 2nd ed., Oxford University Press, Oxford, p. 391, 1989) noted that:
“While the emphasis in this book is on the British experience, it should be noted that the ideological underpinnings of the Thatcher government’s policy orientation bears a strong resemblance to those articulated in the United States. Individual self-reliance, family solidarity, local or small-town community cohesion, and antagonism towards ‘socialized’ services and state control are central features of the culture and political rhetoric of the United States.”
