Cubanomics: Strengths and weaknesses of the Cuban economy

Barack Obama has become the first US president to visit Cuba in 88 years. It's a political breakthrough, but it can also usher in a new era for the Cuban economy. This visit comes as the Obama administration is loosening sanctions that have been in place for decades. It opens the door for American businesses to enter the island.

Also in this programme, we look at whether or not major oil producers are about to turn down the taps. Qatar has invited fellow crude producers to talk about freezing production levels.

Plus, we look at the little-known Chinese stock market that's catering to small companies. But from an investor's perspective, it's not for the faint of heart.
