He stresses the importance of keeping an emergency fund on hand to stave off potential consequences of the fiscal cliff. On the upside, Adam points out that if we don’t end up going off the fiscal cliff, you’ll still be sitting on a solid emergency fund that will surely come in handy down the road.
