Abstract
Financial buzzword “Fiscal Cliff”, a novel jargon to laymen, was selected by CollinsDictionary.com as one of 12 words of 2012 along with the catchy song Gangnam Style. It ranks number 1 among Top 10 Buzzwords in Time’s Top 10 Everything of 2012 List. Economically, it is of utmost significance for USA and the globe alike. Since February of last year, American Capitol Hill and worldwide media has lucubrated its definition, aftermath, essence and so on, nevertheless, there has been no definitive evidence for its earliest source so far, even though it has been misreported and misplaced by most media that Ben Bernoneke fabricated the term in February, 2012. It in factuality can be traced back to 120 years ago, even a great earlier to 400 years ago in Paradise Lost by John Milton.
