Nominal Anchor

(redirected from Anchor, Nominal)

Nominal Anchor

A government policy that provides stability to an economy at the expense of some of that government's autonomy. For example, if a government pegs its currency to another, it reduces the uncertainty in exchange rates but also gives the government less ability to combat inflation or otherwise change the money supply.
