(Markets Edition) Asian and European markets have been dropping Tuesday, with Wall Street lagging as well. We check in with Jay Bryson, managing director and global economist at Wells Fargo Securities for more. Then we look at the mechanics behind the ever-growing Mega Millions lottery prize, which has surpassed $1 billion. How do lottery totals get this high? Then we look at the economics of pro sports stadium, especially their potential impact on a community. For an example, we look toward the story surrounding a proposed soccer stadium in Nashville. Today's show is sponsored by GAIN Capital Group (gaincapital.com), Navy Federal Credit Union (navyfederal.org) and PayPal (paypal.com).
