Vintage phrase …

… BBC News - Who, What, Why: Who first called it a 'fiscal cliff'? (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

… it wasn't until Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, used it in a speech to a congressional committee in February of this year, in reference to the events of 1 January 2013, that the phrase leapt into the mainstream.
