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.

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?
