 Wealth &success

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;

 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 socio-economic implications of this

breakthrough is left as an exercise for the reader.
