Math & Business

Engineers and scientists will never make as much money as business 
executives.
 
Now we have a mathematical proof that explains why this is true:
 
 
             Postulate 1:  Knowledge is Power.
             Postulate 2:  Time is Money.
 
 
          As every engineer knows,
 
             Work
             ---------- = Power
             Time
 
 
         Since Knowledge = Power, and Time = Money, we have:
 
             Work
             ----------- = Knowledge
             Money
 
 
         Solving for Money, we get:
 
             Work
             -----------------  = Money
             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.
 
 Note:
 It has been speculated that the reason why Bill Gates dropped out of 
Harvard's math program was because he stumbled upon this proof as an 
undergraduate, and dedicated the rest of his career to the pursuit of 
ignorance.
