How can we classify negative effects of new technologies?

The existence of most of the ones you listed sounds questionable.  

How about economic risk exposure (for a given person/city/state)? I think there is already a ton of research on this.

E.g. funding some new nuclear power research could provide a 10000x ROI but .0000X% danger of destroying the city/area of the research facility.

We Should Break Up Elite Colleges

Sounds reasonable.  However, a better long-term strategy seems to be complete privatization. I.e. to remove the subsidies and tax breaks. I think Brian Caplan would support this strategy (see his book on the education system).
