<newz//1.3>   SALARY THEOREM

The "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:

        Power = Work / Time


        Knowledge = Power
        Time = Money

It follows that:

        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.
