And then they wonder why socialists say that free market economics is an ideological construct used to support those in power.

The basic economics: If managers don't add value, why do CEOs hire them? It's not enough to say, "Because of government regulation."
How about group-think business philosophy that dictates all businesses have to do X, Y, & Z even if it makes no practical sense? How about that upper levels engage in senseless activity just to be active, and creating new levels of "management" is a means of putting your stamp on things without genuinely doing anything except perhaps create loyalists in the middle levels (and, well, help make the company sluggish and obese)?

Add to that a distorted market where business failure is met with bailouts as well as numerous other distortions of market processes and incentives, and what do you get?
