Salary Theorem

“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:

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

As every engineer knows:

  • Power = Work / Time

Since:

  • Knowledge = Power
  • Time = Money

It follows that:

  • 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.
