On Thursday morning, Secretary Lew will meet with German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble.
Schäuble is a tough one world globalist.
During the "Grexit" crisis of 2015: it was suggested by Yanis Varoufakis that Schäuble had intended to force Greece out of the Euro even before the election of the left-wing Syriza government in Greece.
This was confirmed by former US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner in early 2014; calling Schäuble's plan "frightening," Geithner recorded that Schäuble believed a Greek exit from the Eurozone would scare other countries into line.(via Wikipedia)
Exit from the EU is a good thing but not for Schäuble's Machiavellian reason of keeping in line other Eurozone members.
One wonders what plans he has in store for the UK.
Lew and Schäuble will hold a joint press conference following their meeting.
