‘Fiscal cliff’ is one of the world’s newest neologisms, an expression that everyone’s heard of but no one quite understands. We’re writing about it here to enlighten rather than add to the perfect storm of clichés. It might not die off like 'green shoots' (2009), 'geopolitical environment' (2003) and, hopefully, 'RuddBull' (2012).
If we do it well enough, in 10 minutes time you won’t need to read or watch anything more about the fiscal cliff ever again. And you’ll know what to do if and when the sh*t hits the fan.
