How to use nominal in a sentence?

  1. Naokazu Koshimizu:

    Bonds were supported partly because the pace of vaccinations has slowed in the States and as real-money investors are starting to buy, rise in inflation is also driven more by supply constraints than demand, which is why we are seeing rising inflation expectations and fall in nominal yields.

  2. Bill Gross:

    The reason nominal growth is critical is that it allows a country, company or individual to service their debts with increasing income, allocating a portion to interest expense and another portion to theoretical or practical principal repayment via a sinking fund, without the latter, a credit-based economy ultimately -devolves into Ponzi finance, and at some point implodes. Watch nominal GDP growth.

  4. Isabel Schnabel:
