Marketplace for Monday, February 3, 2014

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
Much of the talk about emerging markets has been about the Fed’s decision to cut back its stimulus program. But there’s something else driving emerging markets down: China. Next, Cleveland now goes the way of St. Louis, Pittsburgh and other former airline hubs, as United announces a streamlining of its routes. We take a look at the factors that go into gateway airports losing their influence and their role, and the wider repercussion for the host city. And finally, there has been a spate of public job leaving – most recently a woman who quit  in a Super Bowl ad in front of 100 million people.  Why?  Is this a hopeful sign that the economy is improving?
