A new treasury secretary brings a chance for a new trading relationship with China
U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is in Beijing today for meetings with Chinese leaders. The topic of their discussions? All things economics and trade.

Will Lew stand up for American businesses and American workers? As of this writing, that remains to be seen. While we're waiting, Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) President Scott Paul laid out his hopes and expectations for our new treasury secretary's first overseas visit in an opinion for Real Clear Politics.
