Just how much of a parasite is the casino capitalism of the modern financial system?  See John Robb, Global Guerrillas: JOURNAL: The Financial Oligarchy Tax (and don't skip the comments, there are some interesting ideas there).

One of the best recent overviews of the problems of contemporary intelligence analysis, by some of the best scholars in the field, is available here.  Beware--it's a long .pdf file--but it's worth it.

Another long and valuable file the Joint Operating Environment 2010, from the American Joint Forces Command.  Wide-ranging forecasts, plus a healthy humility about the limits of forecasting.
