Dilbert's "Salary Theorem" states that, "geologists and engineers can never earn as much money as business executives, company lawyers, and sales people." This basic concept is easily proved by a mathematical equation based on the basic assumptions that "Knowledge is Power" and "Time is Money".
|As every engineer knows:
||Power = Work / Time
|Therefore if as assumed:||Knowledge = Power|
|And:||Time = Money|
|It follows that||Knowledge = Work / Money|
By Solving this equation for Money, we get:
Money = Work / Knowledge
Therefore, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity, regardless of the amount of Work done.
Conclusion: The less you know, the more you make.
