Familiarize yourself with this particular map / data visualization, as  
it tells us a lot about what the coming decades are going to look like:

Books to read.  First, absolutely required, co-edited by our buddy  
Bostrom, with an all-star cast of contributors:

   http://www.amazon.com/Global-Catastrophic-Risks-Martin-Rees/dp/0198570503

Second, any books by Stephen Leeb;  start here:

   http://www.amazon.com/Oil-Factor-Protect-Yourself-Profit/dp/ 
0446694061

   http://www.amazon.com/Coming-Economic-Collapse-Thrive-Barrel/dp/0446699004

Then be sure and read this, though it may have made the rounds here  
before:

   http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/17/magazine/17pessimist-t.html?_r=3&oref=slogin&pagewanted=print

And here's a couple of blog articles worth pondering, from an  
admittedly somewhat edgy blog.  But extraordinary risks (and all  
that...)
