: Prophets of profit

: Is this an idiom?

: Thank you.

No. It's someone's play on words, a pun to be specific, referring to certain people with a connection to the financial or business world, perhaps financial journalists, perhaps economists on the conservative side, perhaps something else connected with the lust for profit.
