When the dialogue surrounding public higher education makes reference to the arts and humanities as "luxuries we may no longer be able to afford"--it is a quotation, but I will not attribute it here--it's worth bearing in mind that there are other perspectives: 

"... it’s impossible to put a dollar value on a nimble, adaptable intellect, which isn’t the fruit of any specific course of study and may be the best tool for an economy and a job market that change unpredictably." --Frank Bruni in today's New York Times 

The complete essay can be found here. Thanks, Eric Foster, for bringing it to my attention.
