So if we accept the premise that’s there’s (as a minimum) a significant correction or (at worst) a major financial crisis coming... where/how would you invest to either ride it out without too much of a haircut, or even make some profit?

You can sell an interest rate futures. But be warned you if you had done that 10 years ago when everyone thought low interest rates weren't sustainable you would have lost a great deal of money.

Traditionally, gold, treasury bills and cash if a crash is due. However, time in the market beats timing the market. If you are 10-20 years out then just focus on buying and buying in the dip. Dollar cost average is what it's called.

If rates go lower, current bond’s prices will increase. I’d look into TLT if you believe America’s rates will go lower.
