If you need any further proof that we now live in The Future, consider this: The Economist is blogging about the effect of robots on labour markets.
Of course, like any good pundit, they hedge their case:
Of course, full human employment may not be a part of a sentient robot overlord’s grand plan. As always, politics constrains economics, and so it’s difficult to make good predictions about future labour markets without knowledge of the institutional environment the machines will put in place once they become self-aware and enslave humanity.
And no mention of Asimov, presumably because it is no longer necessary.
