I disagree. The free market has a lot more opportunity. It can have a broader complexity distribution. It is also better at mitigating risk of someone messing up something 1 in 50 times, through down stream quality control. There isn't time to review someone's product through automated quality control in war, and then reverse action. They aren't similar.
The free market also has much more differentiated management behavior. What it's really saying is that people with 83 or lower IQ can't be managed with the military's management model.
The free market has many more cracks and crevasse that people can fit into.
