Still another position sees two threads simultaneously being developed in classical economics. In this view, neoclassical economics is a development of certain exoteric (popular) views in Adam Smith. Ricardo was a sport, developing certain esoteric (known by only the select) views in Adam Smith. This view can be found in W. Stanley Jevons, who referred to Ricardo as something like "that able, but wrong-headed man" who put economics on the "wrong track". One can also find this view in Maurice Dobb's Theories of Value and Distribution Since Adam Smith: Ideology and Economic Theory (1973), as well as in Karl Marx's Theories of Surplus Value .
We derive from the self-consistent field equations the classical theory of polymer brushes. It results from ignoring, for each position of the polymer end-point, all but the most probable configuration. Results for the brush density profile and polymer end distribution depend sensitively on the square of the ratio of the characteristic brush height to the polymer radius of gyration, β. For finite β, the monomer density exhibits a Gaussian tail and the polymer end-points are stretched. In the limit of infinite β, this classical theory reduces to that of Milner et al. and Zhulina et al.
While many companies operate based on the human relations theory, this type of management has dangers. Companies risk workers becoming too social or easily swayed by personal emotions and opinions when making decisions, rather than relying on hard data. It may be more difficult to reprimand employees for poor performance or dismiss them once they have become invested in the company. Despite these risks, human relations theory has the potential to increase employee retention rates and productivity. As employees feel more valued by a company, they invest in that company and its greater good.
