Why Executives Make More Money

Engineers and scientists will never make as much money as business executives will. Now, for the first time we have a rigid Mathematical proof that explains why this is in fact true.

Postulate 1: Knowledge is power.

Postulate 2: Time is money.

As every Engineer knows, Work / Time = Power

Since Knowledge = Power, and Time = Money, we have Work / Money = Knowledge

Solving for Money, we get: Work / Knowledge = Money
Thus, as Knowledge approaches zero, Money approaches infinity, regardless of the amount of work done.

Conclusion: The less you know, the more you make.

Fascinating blog! I knew both Rich Yates, and believe I recognize Mike Perry... I was in VP-40 from 1996-1999. My name is Phil Marshall, and I was an AWC at the time.
If you enjoy works on artifical intelligence, have you read "Godell, Esher, Bach?"
By Hoffstedder, or perhaps with only one "l."
