    I like to be right.

    Everyone's entitled to my opinion.

    If you don't have anything nice to say to someone, then you need to STFU.

    I clicked no because I personally don't have $2k right now. I'm sure if it was an extreme emergency I could borrow money from a family member but it would have a to be a big emergency.

    The study found around 67% said they were likely to come up with $2,000 in a month, meaning nearly 33% said they weren’t likely.
    If I ever have need of emergency money, i'll just write to my friend the Nigerian Prince and have him send it to me.

    Part of financial independence is having an emergency fund. It should be 3-6 months (or more) of expenses (mortgage, electric, car payments, etc.).

    This should not be an investment either. Something liquid like a savings account. Even I Bonds or CDs work for sort term with a bit better interest rate than a savings account.
