With the history of the one child policy and Chinese culture favoring male heirs, there's going to be a lot of Chinese bachelors that can't find wives. That's going to be a lot of horny, frustrated, unemployed men that can't afford homes. Prime fodder to have their frustrations directed outward by a war of expansion where they can be burned off as cannon fodder.
A good investment would be for propaganda promoting the gay agenda in China.
I am only partly joking here.

Use cash - it's like bitcoin but it can't be tracked across the Internet.

Of course, if you take cash from some people and then give it to other people, well then you must be a criminal.

"economic collapse"?!
I have no idea what you're talking about.
Why, Dubai's economy is so healthy that people just leave their Ferraris sitting on the street when they get bored with them.
Dubai's a fucking economic miracle, the laws of gravity (or karma) do not apply.

The embedded ARM boards from Technologic Systems are worth looking at also. I used a TS-7260 with a large enough SD card to install Debian with gcc and it worked great. It booted nearly instantly and consumed something like 100mA of current at 3.3V IIRC. It was quite a robust little box. There are newer and faster models than the TS-7260 at the link I provided above.

Power corrupts. And atomic power corrupts atomically.
