**Knowledge is Power**

Time is Money

and as every engineer knows, Power is Work over Time.

So, substituting algebraic equations for these time worn bits of wisdom, we get:

K = P (1)

T = M (2)

P = W/T (3)

Now, do a few simple substitutions:

Put W/T in for P in equation (1), which yields:

K = W/T (4)

Put M in for T into equation (4), which yields:

K = W/M (5)

Now we’ve got something. Expanding back into English, we get:

*Knowledge equals Work over Money.*

What this MEANS is that:

1.The More You Know, the More Work You Do, and

2.The More You Know, the Less Money You Make.

Solving for Money, we get:

M = W/K (6)

*Money equals Work Over Knowledge.*

From equation (6) we see that Money approaches infinity as Knowledge approaches 0, regardless of the Work done.

What THIS MEANS is:

*The More you Make, the Less you Know.*

Solving for Work, we get

W = M K (7)

*Work equals Money times Knowledge.*

From equation (7) we see that Work approaches 0 as Knowledge approaches 0.

What THIS MEANS is:

**The stupid rich do little or no work.**

Working out the socioeconomic implications of this breakthrough is left as an exercise for the reader.
