Dilbert's Law

Engineers Vs. Business

Engineers and scientists will never make as much money as business executives. Now we have a mathematical proof that explains why this is true:

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

As every engineer knows,

Work
------     = Power
Time
Since
Knowledge = Power
and
Time = Money
we have:
Work
------     = Knowledge
Money
Solving for Money, we get:
Work
-------------     = Money
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.

Note: It has been speculated that the reason why Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard's math program was because he stumbled upon this proof as an undergraduate, and dedicated the rest of his career to the pursuit of ignorance.
