To place a company in a voluntary agreement (CVA) of a company, there is a specific process that must be followed to assess the profitability of the agreement and put in place this process of turnaround the business. If three-quarters of CVA voters disagree, your company may face a voluntary liquidation. A second form of quantitative restriction is a voluntary agreement between exporters to increase their prices and/or limit their export volumes. These policies are called voluntary price commitments or export restrictions, and although they have many common economic characteristics; they are currently treated differently in the WTO. Indeed, while the 1995 safeguard agreement was prohibited, price commitments are encouraged as a result of the 1995 WTO agreement on Antidumping.bh. As noted in point 3 above, consumers of pollution are generally consumers of a public evil that is not competitive in consumption; What we get, everyone. In this case, negotiations between wastewater recipients will not result in an effective distribution among recipients: some will want lower levels of pollution than others and will be willing to pay, but the fact that pollution is not competitive will prevent this result. When a recipient pays a polluter for an additional discount, all beneficiaries benefit in the same way. This non-competition in consumption explains why free trade in a public bath will not reach the social optimum.
The correction of externalities, as discussed so far in this chapter, has focused on government intervention in private markets through regulatory approaches such as taxation, authorities and standards. However, if the government works with objectives other than maximizing social welfare [Peltzman (1976)], there is no guarantee that state intervention will achieve social optimum. In addition, lipsey and Lancaster`s two best arguments (1956-1957) and the “double dividend” literature suggest that state intervention could reduce social welfare, even if the government`s objective is to improve well-being. It is therefore useful to consider other possible ways to achieve environmental protection. Two possibilities are voluntary environmental impact programs and the use of courts. Many English-speaking Commonwealth of Nations countries that have structured their training in a neoliberal market, such as New Zealand, Scotland, Australia, South Africa, England and Ireland, have adopted national certification frameworks. They can also be taken into account in Kintzer`s typology, with people created in New Zealand and South Africa being prescriptive and more favourable to Scotland, Ireland and Australia (Young, 2005: 12) and almost voluntarily for certain sectors. Some argue that a certification framework is part of the neoliberal agenda, because it brings education together and thus contributes “to the creation of education markets by providing a common qualifying currency. This common currency, like the money of an economy, is seen as promoting increased competition between diploma providers, since all institutions recognize and reward learning in the same way” (Strathdee, 2003: 157).
