Dilbert’s Salary Theorem states that: “Engineers and scientists will never make as much money as business executives.”
Now we have an mathematical proof that explains why this is true:
- Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power
- Postulate 2: Time is Money
As every engineer knows,
Power = Work/Time
Since Knowledge = Power we have:
Knowledge = Work/Time.
Since Time = Money we have:
Knowledge = Work/Money.
Solving for Money we get:
Money = Work/Knowledge
Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity regardless of the Work done.
Conclusion: The less you know, the more you Money you make.
