Bus/Financial - Law: Contract(s)
German term or phrase: wirtschaftlich
It's the context that has me a bit confused with this. In talking about replacing any of the provisions of a contract that are deemed invalid with ones that come as close as possible to the meaning and intent of the originals, the word "wirtschaftlich" appears. The full sentence reads: "Insofern verpflichten sich die Parteien, eine der unwirksamen Bestimmung (wirtschaflich) möglichst nahekommende Neuabrede zu treffen."

economically
Explanation:
Used adverbially, to emphasize the context, and in parentheses because the context is obvious.

economically viable


Explanation:
used as an adverb to modify "Neuabrede", that is, the parties will find a new agreement that is as close as possible to the old ineffective one and yet is economically viable.
