Found on MSN: 25 Investments For Doomsday

I actually did a double-take when I saw the tiny, little teaser:

"Plan now for "a breakdown of the civilized infrastructure" warns hedge fund guru Barton Biggs in his bestseller "Wealth, War and Wisdom." "Your safe haven must be self-sufficient and capable of growing some kind of food. . . . It should be well-stocked with seed, fertilizer, canned food, wine, medicine, clothes, etc. Think Swiss Family Robinson."

Ah yes, Paul Farrell, the resident token doomer at MarketWatch.  Pretty much a list based on resource constrained world, aka commodity plays.  I'm surprised he didn't mention currency devaluation, also a good case for tangibles.  Jim Rogers is also switched on in this way, without bringing the doom drama that Farrell brings.
