Give this a read if you question why people who know much less than you are earning much more than you are.
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
Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power
Postulate 2: Time is Money
As every engineer knows: Power = Work / Time
Since Knowledge = Power
And: Time = Money
The result is : 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 money you make.
Although this shouldn’t be taken seriously, I’m sure there are times when you might find this useful to cheer yourself up and just move on to things that you should put more focus on or at least have some control on.
This is funny. But, you’re right. It is a reality that some people who aren’t that intelligent make lots of money. But they have lots of help too 🙂
