Imagining a future when machines have all the jobs

In this Monday, Jan. 14, 2013, photo author Martin Ford, 49, poses for a portrait in San Francisco. Ford's book, "The Lights in the Tunnel" describes a nightmare scenario where machines leave 75 percent of American workers unemployed by 2089. Consumer spending collapses. Even those who are still working slash spending and save everything they can; they fear their jobs are doomed, too. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu)
