Dilbert's Theorem or:


Recommended Posts

* Dilbert's Theorem **

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.


The less you know, the more you make.
