Advice to Europe: Focus on Boosting Jobs and Growth

As G20 finance ministers arrived in Moscow for a two-day meeting, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has told Europe it is time to focus on boosting growth as President Obama has done since the 2008 financial crisis.

“The U.S. is again a source of strength in the world economy, only five years after it was the center of a global crisis. This has not happened by accident,” said Lew in an op-ed published by the Financial Times on Thursday.

Lew believes Europe must now focus on boosting jobs and growth as President Obama has done since taking power shortly after the fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008.
