Alexander Hamilton, first Secretary of the Treasury, is on the ten dollar bill

Secretary of the Treasury is an Office of the United States created as a Cabinet position by George Washington. It is fifth in line of succession to the Presidency.

The current Treasury Secretary is Jack Lew.

The position has long been held by conservatives as unnecessary. "Why should we be involved in money?" they ask. "Because we're actually living in the country," is the answer. We've seen what happens when the government refuses to manage the economy.

United KingdomEdit

In the United Kingdom the equivalent post is held by the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
