Is the ‘Fiscal Cliff’ This Year's Scrooge?

We’ve been hearing a lot about the fiscal cliff, but what exactly does it mean? Today’s Bulls & Bears guests went head-to-head over the growing fears and whether consumers really need to be concerned.

that it sounds terrible. He says that the more people hear about this fiscal cliff, the less inclined they’ll be to spend.
