Why scientists earn less than business executives
Ever wondered why scientists will never make as much money as business executives?
Here is a rigorous mathematical proof that explains why this is true:
postulate 1: KNOWLEDGE is POWER
As every scientist knows:
postulate 2: TIME is MONEY
POWER = WORK / TIME
Since KNOWLEDGE = POWER, and 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 WORK done
(since the WORK is always finite).
Conclusion: The less you KNOW, the more you MAKE.
Remark: 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.
