You should compare inelastic with elastic.

JUNK BOND: A bond, usually a corporate bond, that has a higher than average risk of default, but which pays a higher than average interest rate to compensate. Junk bonds were a popular method of investment during the 1970s and 1980s, especially to finance corporate mergers.
