Conflicts can also follow from divergent regulatory approaches, notably when conventional rules based on state intervention and “command and control” meet flexible policies based on the price signals of functioning markets and other financial incentives. An example for such colliding traditions can be seen in the relationship of emissions trading and many conventional ambient pollution control regimes, as the former relies on market forces to guide the standard of technology in participating installations, while the latter, in turn, tend to force rigid performance standards and emission ceilings on each individual operator.
