(from somewhere on the Internet) VALUE OF HUMAN CAPITAL Engineers and scientists will never make as much money as business executives. Now there is a rigorous mathematical proof that explains why this is 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 Work done. Conclusion: The less you know, the more money you make.
