I think massive unemployment and poverty will lead to massive riots. That will lead to increasingly violent and totalitarian means of control, until the government/replacement government concede to the demographics and create a welfare state.

Control of resources and means of production will be taken over by the government in order to create the welfare state. They will trade with other governments for resources that they don't have.

The welfare states will probably resemble corrupt totalitarian oligarchies.

Places with no resources to trade will probably resemble Somalia.
