In case you've ever wondered why ignorance rises to the executive level, here is a simple explanation that is also a mathematical proof:
Knowledge is Power. Time is Money.
And, as every actuary (with some physics training) knows:
So, if Knowledge = Power and Time = Money, then through simple substitutions,
Solving for Money, we get:
Work / Knowledge = Money
Thus, If Work is held constant as a positive number (no matter how small!) Money approaches infinity as Knowledge approaches zero.
What this means is:
All else being equal, the less you know, the more you make.
