German to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial - Economics / environmental economics
German term or phrase:Mengensteuerung
"Die aus der Umweltökonomie stammende Idee der Umweltzertifikate beruht auf einer marktkonformen staatlichen *Mengensteuerung*."
The context is a discussion of various environmental policy instruments from the perspective of environmental law. In this case, environmental permits are the issue.
"Mengensteuerung" is a technical term in German economics. Does anybody know what term would be used in English economic discourse?
Found one example of Mengensteuerung translated as "quantity control"?
