Dilbert’s Theorem on Salary states that engineers and 

scientists can never earn as much salary as business 

executives and sales people.
This theorem can now be supported by a mathematical 

equation based on the following three postulates:

    Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power (Knowledge=Power)

    Postulate 2: Time is Money (Time=Money)

    Postulate 3 (as every engineer knows): Power = Work / Time
By substitution, since Knowledge = Power, Postulate 3 becomes:

    Knowledge = Work / Time
and since Time = Money, we have:

    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.
