<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.
