Speculation over the health of President Fidel Castro has a variety of business people wondering if Cuba will soon become a major economic opportunity.

Fidel Castro is sick — but few feel certain about exactly how sick the longtime leader is, and when, or if, he will return to overseeing Cuba.

For now, Fidel's brother, Raul, is running the country. Some say Raul is too weak and will lose power soon. Others say he's strong and will be in power for years.

NPR's Adam Davidson reports on how American business looks at Cuba.
