Export Quota

Export Quota

A limit a country sets on the number of units of a good that may be exported over a period of time. Export quotas are usually instituted in order to maximize the domestic supply, which helps keep prices low within the country. While this may be good for consumers, it is not necessarily beneficial for producers. See also: Export control.
