MIAMI (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Friday said a strong U.S. dollar was a "good thing" and reflected strength in the U.S. economy, repeating a long-standing mantra of U.S. administrations.

Lew was speaking in Miami before students and businessmen at the Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus.
