The impending crises that the author mentions can be solved only by reduction in government spending, which is unlikely to happen any time.
The "how you can profit from it" should really be "how you can avoid the negative consequences", which forms the second part of the book. The author shows how you can spread your bets among various investments to be safe.
What I did not like about the book is that the first part is a big teaser without telling you what he will say in the second part. What he does say can be summarized in a paragraph beforehand so you can keep it in mind while reading the first part. This will help the reader decide whether the author's suggestions avoid the crises he's describing or not.
Overall, I think it is worth reading and understanding (it is an easy read), but not necessarily believing in what he says/concludes.
