The stock market has been rocky so far in 2014. After months of steadily climbing and setting new records in 2013, the Dow Jones alone is down more than 4% this month. The downward slide comes even as the economy strengthens. This week on Money Talking, contributors Joe Nocera of the New York Times and Rana Foroohar of Time magazine discuss the recent drops, the incoming Fed chairman Janet Yellen and whether there's more volatility in store in the coming weeks and months. And the Super Bowl: Just how much of a financial boon is it for the host city?
