After applying some simple algebra to some trite phrases and cliches a
new understanding can be reached of the secret to wealth and success.
here it goes...
Knowledge is Power
Time is Money
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:
K = W/T (4)
K = W/M (5)
Now we've got something. Expanding back into English, we get:
Knowledge equals Work over Money, or
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, or 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, or The stupid rich do little or no work.
Working out the socioeconomic implications of this breakthrough is left
as an exercise for the reader.
