J'ai trouvé que l'expression "but for" était utilisée dans le domaine économique... J'avais pensé hypothétique avant, et jepense que ce n'est pas une mauvaise idée.
Voici quelques exemples:
Before the Federal Circuit began its quest, patent damages were calculated using a fairly straightforward model that lawyers and economists who practice in this geeky area refer to as the "but for" world. Under this model, the patent owner must travel back in time and construct a hypothetical world where the defendant never infringed the patent.

Explanation: En fouinant un peu sur Internet, j'ai trouvé quelques exemples qui donnent l'impression que ce pourrait être ça. Voici ces exemples :
Q: The tax credits have what is referred to as a `but for’ provision. What is that?
Ready: The notion is that `but for’ the VEPC tax credit the investment wouldn’t have happened. Basically, what VEPC does is they attribute the growth — the jobs added, the investment that takes place, to this `but for’ process. And what we’re saying is the `but for’ clause should not used to measure and to determine the eligibility. I think it’s very difficult to verify and it should not be used as a measurement tool. http://rutlandherald.nybor.com/Archive/Articles/Article/6153...
My aunt is an immigration lawyer. Last week I was sitting in her office
as she spoke to a client on the phone. She explained to him that in order to
determine the conditions necessary for eligibility for a certain category of
visa, one needs to apply the "but for" test, as in, "But for the fact that
(extenuating circumstance 'X' exists), you would not be entitled to (the
benefit you are currently enjoying, 'Y')." http://www.sweetfancymoses.com/letters_aug01.html
Passing the "but for" test.
For a city or development authority to use TIF to help finance a redevelopment project, it must be determined that "but for" TIF, the project would not be undertaken by a private developer, and would not occur within the reasonably foreseeable future. Projects that pass the "but for" test have no negative impact on the taxing jurisdiction, since they use only tax revenues that, "but for" TIF, would not have been generated. http://www.mcda.org/about_us/factsheets/taxincrementfinancin...
