After a week of relentless Republican attacks on trade deals and globalization, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is heading to a meeting in China that he hopes will steady the global economy and ease uncertainty caused by Britain's surprise vote last month to leave the European Union.Lew said the United States favors a negotiated transition agreement that provides "maximum integration" between the United Kingdom and European Union economies.The subtext of Lew's remarks was a steady-as-you-go message to global partners: Despite political ferment at home, epitomized by the presidential nomination of Donald Trump at the GOP convention in Cleveland this week, the United States remains a solid and reliable center of the global economy.Lew said that a likely topic of conversation among the G-20 finance ministers will be the political quandary of how the benefits of the global economy can be shared more fairly – an issue that seems to be motivating many Trump voters in the United States and Brexit supporters in Britain.
