Dilbert's "Salary Theorem" states that "Engineers and scientists can never earn as much as business executives and sales people."
This theorem is supported mathematically, based on the following two postulates:
Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power.
Postulate 2: Time is Money.
As every engineer knows: Power = Work / Time
Since: Knowledge = Power
And: Time = Money
It is therefore true that: Knowledge = Work / Money
Solving this equation for Money, we get:
Money = Work / Knowledge
Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity,regardless of the amount of Work done.
Conclusion: The less you know, the more you make!
