You're not reading what I write, you're reading what you want to read, and then arguing against that. You are a narcissist, and not a particularly interesting one.
You haven't demonstrated that. In fact, it's you who is doing that, which I will demonstrate.

That sounds like you, saying how stressful and underpaid the management position is. Now if you aren't a manager this doesn't apply, but I would be very surprised if you aren't or weren't at some point.
There exists a labor market, of which you are not a participant. Actors in that market get to decide on prices, not you. Were you an employer, a manager, a customer, or hell even an auditor, you would get to have a say. You are none of those.
It is true I have no say in hiring managers, but I am a participant in the workforce with plenty of experience. You also seem to be forgetting this is Slashdot, a place for discussion where opinions are provided on various topics. Comparing "infinite" value for a job I don't want to do and should be "thankful" for, and something rather more mundane to the kind of pricing we all do, your position is a fantasy.
You say most people succeed at it, and it's not hard.
Demonstrating what you claimed I was doing at the start of this post. I never said the job was easy. Go ahead, provide a quote. You can't. I respect good management skills. I don't respect the obscene overvalue placed on them, and history has shown just how far out of whack management pay has become, especially as you move up the chain.
I never said most people succeed at it. Go ahead, provide a quote. You can't. I did say that the supply of competent people outstripped the demand and that managers were overpaid, and the problem got worse as you went up the chain. It isn't the same thing.
That doesn't jibe with facts. Most businesses fail. Many large businesses waste money left and right due to incompetence, and then end up failing anyway. Do you dispute these claims?
No, I don't. Most businesses fail for a variety of reasons. It isn't necessarily due to incompetence. Businesses exist in a complex, dynamic environment with cutthroat competition. It takes some luck to succeed, no matter how competent the business. There are a multitude of reasons on how the best plans can go to waste.
Because I don't see how you can reconcile "management is so easy a monkey can do it" with "most managers suck and lead their companies to ruin".
The latter sentiment is the typical Dilbert-view of the workplace you see around Slashdot, placing all the blame on management or marketing. I don't subscribe to it.
