Dilbert's Theorem on Salary

Dilbert's Theorem on Salary states that engineers and scientists can never earn as much salary as business executives and salespeople. 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:
Work
Time
 = Power

Since: Knowledge = Power, and Time = Money, we have:
Work
Money
 = Knowledge

Solving for Money, we get:
Work
Knowledge
 = Money

Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity regardless of the amount of work done.

Conclusion: The Less you Know, the More you Make.

In einer deutschen Übersetzung müßte ich Leistung mit Macht gleichsetzen - das geht nicht.
