Know Less To Earn More- Dilbert'S Salary Theorem



The Salary Theorem proves mathematically that those who know more make less money. Therefore, if you know nothing, you should be fabulously wealthy!!

Original Dilbert's "Salary Theorem" states:
"Scientists and Engineers can never earn as much as administrators and sales people."

This theorem can now be proved mathematically:

Given:
Power = Work / Time and,
Knowledge is Power
Substituting knowledge for power, we obtain: Knowledge = Work/ Time

If time = money, then: Knowledge = Work/ Money

Solving this equation for money, we obtain:

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.

Take a Look at more comprehensive Extended Dilbert's Theorem, which gives correction to the Original Dilbert's Theorem.
