Why Ignorance Rises to the Executive Level

from: Phys 13 News, March 1998, page 4.

Postulate 1: Knowledge is Power
Postulate 2: Time is Money

From Physics, we know that:

Power = Work / Time

If Knowledge is Power and Time = Money, then by substitution, we get:

Knowledge = Work / Money

Solving for Money:

Money = Work / Knowledge

Thus Money approaches infinity as Knowledge approaches zero, regardless of the work done. What this means is "The less you know, the more you make."
