Does David Brooks believe what he writes?

David Brooks is at it again. It used to be that you studied the humanities to enlighten your self or some shit like that. Now its because it'll help your career, even though engineers make about twice as much as humanities majors.

I wonder if he believes what he writes. He implies the subprime mortgage crisis and the BP oil disaster and if more bankers and businessmen read Gibbon. Social skills are important, but can you really build them by reading books? Maybe. But wouldn't it be better to read books by psychologists--or talk to people?
