The goal of the price linking is to create more closely a user-pays system. This stops governments from profiteering with hidden tax regimes. You can only put so much into Gambling Rehabilitation before extra money will not make extra difference, thus taking away the government's incentive to approve or disapprove extra poker machines - as they are not gaining revenue from it.

The two beauties to price linking are:

1.Flexibility - a 5 % increase in driving with a particular fuel would create 5% extra revenue for roads, or cleaner fuel research etc. It self regulates.
2.Accountability - because funds are drawn from with in it's own sphere, it creates internal accountability. This prevents a "false economy". (ie cheap fuel that causes damage to the environment does not reflect it's true cost compared to another fuel slightly more expensive which is clean)
In brief, price linking means effectively that smokers pay for the possible consequences of smoking, dangerous drivers pay for the damage they cause, and so forth.

interdependent pricing


Explanation:
Although interdependent pricing results in the same harm to competitors as an agreement to fix prices, it is clear that the latter is per se illegal and the former, lacking a viable remedy, is legal.

Also see oligopoly... A market dominated by a small number of participants who are able to collectively exert control over supply and market prices.

Example sentence(s):
  • Interdependent pricing can be result of market structure, or overt agreement.

Price fixing


Explanation:
Just wanted to supply another option.
Sorry, I'm sure if I'm allowed to give two answers to the same question.
I think you'll have to decide which term is best according to the text you are translating. It's sort of hard to tell from just that one sentence.

Example sentence(s):
  • Price fixing is permitted in some markets but not others; where allowed it is often known as resale price maintenance or retail price maintenance.
