Corporate Algebra

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:

Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power.
Postulate 2: Time is Money.

As every engineer knows:

Power = Work / Time and since:
Knowledge = Power and:
Time = Money,

it is therefore true that:
Knowledge = Work / Money

Solving this equation 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.


  1. Very important information. Thanks for sharing

  2. This is just ridiculous!
