Humanities – a source of future value?

This is my first vlog. I discuss how recent reports from think-tanks and discussions with major employers point to a re-evaluating of the humanities – not along the lines of their inherent or social value (that is a separate argument) but along purely monetary lines.

UPDATE 6th March. As so often happens these days, almost as soon as I had produced this piece I found this article from last July via a twitter feed – from an ‘in-house philosopher at google’. The writer explains the value of the humanities in his technical world.
