Engineers and scientists will never make much money as business executives. Now a rigorous mathematical proof has developed that explains this is true:

Postulate 1: Knowledge Power.

Postulate 2: is Money.

every engineer knows,

Work = Power * Time

Since Knowledge = Power, and Time = Money, have:

Work = Knowledge * Money

Solving for Money, we :

Money = ----------

Thus, Knowledge decreases, Money increases, regardless of how much Work done.

Conclusion: The less you know, the more make.

Note: It has been speculated that the reason Bill Gates dropped of Harvard's math program was because he stumbled upon this proof as an undergraduate, and dedicated the rest his career to the pursuit of ignorance.
