Scientist’s salary

I just found sth nice about salaries of scientists…

Petro’s “Salary Theorem” states that:

engineers and scientists can never earn as much as business executives and sales people

and of course there is a mathematical proof for that, using known postulates:

Postulate 1: “knowledge is power”
Postulate 2: “time is money”

so here we go:

power = work / time (that’s highschool physics)
using the postulates it follows:
knowledge = work / money
solving that 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 money you make
