__A Nobel Prize winning equation formulated!!__

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.

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:

K = W/T (4)

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

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

What this MEANS is that:

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

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:

Solving for Work, we get

Work equals Money times Knowledge

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

What THIS MEANS is:

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