David Wessel Explains the Fiscal Cliff (On a Cliff)

David Wessel, economics editor for The Wall Street Journal, has produced a fiscal cliff primer video. Wessel covers everything from why the cliff exists, what our current debt dilemma is, and where we could go next. It's a great introduction to the fiscal cliff and the current budget debate.

You should especially check it out if you enjoy some great whiteboard animation (we're fans.) If you want to learn more, check out our fiscal cliff paper.
