This was demonstrated in the proof of the Dilbert Principle, which goes like 
this:

Dilbert Principal Proof
Knowledge = Power
Time = Money

Power = Work / Time
Therefore
Knowlege = Work / Money

Solve for Money:
Money = Work / Knowledge
Thus money approaches infinity as Knowledge (which we might take as a proxy 
for value) approaches zero, regardless of the work done.
