These three problems you listed are interwoven with each other. Less energy inputs into the economy means less jobs which means more social unrest and, thus a tightening of the authoritarian ratchets by way of an ever-expanding security state. So to pick the root of the problem from which the others spring forth, we must name peak oil or peak net energy.

But the above problems are actually symptoms of a deeper problem - that of Capitalism's inherent need for continual growth.
