One year. And I don't care all that much, as long as I'm happy.

Ok then, just give me the money. I'm sure I'd work harder for more money.
Once again this doesn't always achieve better Marginal product. Only to a certain extent will it work

You realise I was being sarcastic with the comment I made about Britain needing more graduates in those subjects.
Yes. However I see English as a valid subject.

Strong argument you got there bro. That is sarcasm, beaucse you havent really made an argument at all.

So we're agreed, some subjects shouldn't be government funded for people's 'self enrichment' and subjects should be funded based on thier utility?

Well my point still stands. Why shouldn't the government pay for my three years 'self enrichment' to egypt? It pays for your three year trip to adolescent summer camp.

History students and their counterparts who have studied english literature, old norse, music, philosophy, sociology, psychology, classics, and a whole variety of other subjects can be found working as lawyers, judges, doctors, teachers, diplomats, civil servants, and so on. The three years of enrichment probably gave them the skills they apply in their daily lives. A willingness to learn and approach subjects with an open mind, good writing skills, ability to digest significant amounts of information well and quickly, and so forth. To dismiss them because there isn't a directly laid out career path based on some spurious notion of economic utility is daft. Or are judges or diplomats somehow not useful professionals in your world?

Beacuse these people wouldn't go into those professions without three years of summer camp? Cause and correlation.

"probably gave them the skills "
"probably"
