Salary Theorem: Why Bankers earn more

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

Since Knowledge = Power
And Time = Money
Then 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.
