If you get a chance, pick up the latest issue of the Atlantic and read through James Fallows' article on the coming economic crash.  Its alarmist, sure, and its gimmick, a look back from 2016, ensures that everything is worst case and some of it a bit far-fetched (i.e, Venezuela is not going to shut down oil exports to America, and if we crashed China would probably be hurt worse), but it's also an enormously broad overview of all the spots where our economy is weak.  Well worth the read, particularly the footnotes.

By the way, when did The Atlantic become so gimmicky?  Retrospectives from the future, war games towards Iran, North Korea, and China, modern-day Tocquevilles...is reality really so low-stakes that they can't think of anything to say about it?
