"[M]anagement theory is what happens to philosophers when you pay them too much."
One of many memorable observations and statements in Matthew Stewart's 2006 article from The Atlantic, "The Management Myth".
This fits into my own system of Progress, Models, Institutions, Technology, Limits, (and, I'm starting to think necessary: Values), under "Models".
Is there a general principle of model design or evolution in which overreward tends toward poor design or fit? This is related to concepts of excessive agency -- the idea that individuals have more agency, control overy their lives, than they really do.
There's also the observation that much of what's now management and political science evolved from what was once called "moral philosophy".
(Economics as well.)
