Dilbert’s theorem on calculating salary

This theorem can be supported by a mathematical equation based on the following three postulates:

* Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power (Knowledge=Power)
* Postulate 2: Time is Money (Time=Money)
* Postulate 3 (as every engineer knows): Power = Work / Time

By substitution, since Knowledge = Power, Postulate 3 becomes: Knowledge = Work / Time
And since Time = Money, we have: 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.
