Earlier in the month, Lew met in Istanbul with finance ministers representing the 20 leading economies. Lew said that globally, growth is too “weak and uneven” and the underlying issue is the dearth of demand. While the European banks eased a bit, even amid fears of “currency misalignment, ” what is also needed are spending and investment projects to create growth in economies, according to the Financial Times. This impacts the U.S. in particular, because the strong dollar has been hurting companies that do business abroad, and one reason for the overly high rate of the U.S. currency is the lack of balance in growth between the U.S. and other countries.
