Salary Theorem

The “Salary Theorem” states:

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:

Postulate 1:  Knowledge is Power.
Postulate 2:  Time is Money.

As every engineer knows:   Power = Work / Time  
Since:   Knowledge = Power  (Postulate 1)
  Time = Money  (Postulate 2)
Therefore:   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.
