I’m not sure where I picked this up. But, with all the talk about salaries/bonuses, etc., I thought it appropos. I didn’t write it (wish I was that clever) and that’s all I know. I would attribute it if I were able to.
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!!!!
