Economically, literary skills are more effective than arithmetic skills.

I look forward to debating this topic with you, my opponent. My opening argument will come in round two"it is up to you, whether or not you decide to argue in round one, or not.

Mathematics teaches patience, discipline, and step-by-step problem-solving skills. For those with a substantial background in mathematics, an unlimited number of career opportunities are available. According to Jobs Rated Almanac , a 1990 publication of World Almanac Books of New York, NY, careers that require a very strong background in mathematics were listed as the five "best" jobs. They were,software engineer
actuary
computer systems analyst
computer programmer
mathematician

Almost all of the top fifty jobs in this "best" jobs list involved mathematical reasoning and knowledge. This list was the result of the comparison of two hundred fifty jobs classified according to :

income
future outlook
physical demands
job security
stress
work environment



After this rather long quote the meaning is simple. The highest tier jobs are almost all math related. You need very high tier math degree in order get these jobs. This is why they are more economicly sound.
