Wieser's two main contributions to economic theory are the theory of "imputation," establishing that factor prices are determined by output prices and the theory of "alternative cost" or "opportunity cost" as the foundation of value theory. Both are fundamental "subjectivist" pillars in Neoclassical theory which were effectively ignored by Alfred Marshall and the "real cost" British theorists.
