There was a lot of hysteria about the fiscal cliff last month, and partisan hyperbole pretty much ruled the news cycle. So you can imagine my relief to find some actual rational analysis that fleshes out what we actually learned from the exercise. Here Planet Money's Adam Davidson breaks it down for us and it's well worth the watch. Best quote: "Talk about [the economy] like what it is: not an existential crisis, not some battle between two fundamentally different religious views, but a math problem, a really solvable math problem."
