The Less You Know, The More You Make

Fact 1Knowledge is Power

Expressed mathematically: Knowledge = Power

Fact 2

Time is Money
Expressed mathematically: Time = Money

Fact 3

From physics, Power = Work / Time

So now we just replace a few terms:

PowerKnowledge = Work / TimeMoney

Remember, Knowledge IS Power and Time IS Money.

Or written more cleanly: Knowledge = Work / Money

Solving for Money, we get: Money = Work / Knowledge

Therefore, Money approaches infinity as Knowledge approaches zero, regardless of the amount of Work done. Perhaps this explains why executives at failed institutions are still making the big bucks!
