Asteroid belts

Think we know quite a bit about the planets right now (OK researchers want to know more) but I state it is time to come to the next step after exploration. Go and live there and start economic activities. Mercury and Venus - too hostile, maybe some energy harvesting? Earth ~opinions differ ;) Moon - first step to deeper space Mars - yes, start terraforming Asteroid belts - Mining robots, send asteroids to the inner planets - esp mars - in a controlled way (did I really say that ;) Jupiter and beyond - current technology is not adequate for economic activities (OK start discussion!) Just thinking out loud :)
