Salary Theorem

Dilbert's "Salary Theorem" states that "Engineers and scientists can never earn as much as business executives and sales people."



This theorem can now be supported by a mathematical equation based on the following two postulates:

As every engineer knows: Power = Work / Time

Since:

Knowledge = Power

Time = Money

Knowledge = Work/Money.


Solving 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.
