Dilbert’s “Salary Theorem”

For everyone looking at new opportunities for the new year, and resolutions for 2009, I thought I'd share a post from http://tinyurl.com/7r7efa

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:

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

As every engineer knows

(A) Power = Work / Time


(B) Knowledge = Power


(C)Time = Money

It follows by substitution that:

(D) Knowledge = Work / Money.

Solving this equation for Money, we get:

(E) 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!!!!
