Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch claimed Britain is "far more successful" because of Baroness Thatcher's "brave leadership".
Mr Murdoch praised the former Prime Minister's role in facing down the trade unions in the 1980s and said the Government made it possible for News International to survive a year of industrial action fighting against a move of operations to Wapping, East London.
The tycoon wrote in The Times (£): "Mrs Thatcher understood that risk was a vital ingredient in a free enterprise society. She understood that such a society had to be led by a government with backbone.
"After the Second World War, in which the country lost a second generation of its finest men, Britain had created a dependency state. It killed off aspiration.
"In 1979 Margaret Thatcher set about its rehabilitation. She put the economy on a sound footing, she ended a culture of crippling strikes, she encouraged entrepreneurs to come here and set up their businesses.
"Thanks to her I have experienced in Britain many of my defining moments as a businessman, a Britain that is far more successful as a result of her brave leadership."

Sunday Times cartoonist Gerald Scarfe has issued a statement regarding the criticism he faced over a a cartoon published in the newspaper:
First of all I am not, and never have been, anti-Semitic.
The Sunday Times has given me the freedom of speech over the last 46 years to criticise world leaders for what I see as their wrong-doings.
This drawing was a criticism of Netanyahu, and not of the Jewish people: there was no slight whatsoever intended against them.
I was, however, stupidly completely unaware that it would be printed on Holocaust Day, and I apologise for the very unfortunate timing.
Yesterday News Corp chairman Rupert Murdoch was forced to apologise for the cartoon, which he described as "grotesque" and "offensive".

Rupert Murdoch has announced he will shut the tablet newspaper The Daily from December 15, saying the business model for the publication was not sustainable. The paper was only available on iPad, iPhone, Android phones or Kindle Fire.
Announcing the decision today amid a number of changes to New Corporation and Fox Group, Mr Murdoch said the lessons learned from The Daily would be applied to other titles within the group. Technology "and other assets, including some staff" will be folded into The New York Post. He said:
"From its launch, The Daily was a bold experiment in digital publishing and an amazing vehicle for innovation. Unfortunately, our experience was that we could not find a large enough audience quickly enough to convince us the business model was sustainable in the long-term"
"Therefore we will take the very best of what we have learned at The Daily and apply it to all our properties. [...] I want to thank all of the journalists, digital and business professionals for the hard work they put into The Daily."
