Scientists will never make as much money as business executives. Now we have a mathematical proof that explains why this is true:

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

As every scientist knows: 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.

Conclusion: The less you know, the more you make.
