Brief thought on the financial viability of studying philosophy

People talk shit about the financial viability of studying philosophy, but there’s some reasons it caught on in Ancient Greece in part for how much it helped with being good at business. Like, studying a bunch of the most convincing and world-shaping thinkers, learning their moves, learning to understand and articulate radically different perspectives on contentious issues, and coming up with ideas just to put them out for others to batter until we see if they’re viable all sound like things that would prepare one to do well in business.
