Term premium and growth drivers

“When growth and inflation are primarily driven by aggregate supply, nominal bond returns tend to be positively correlated with growth, necessitating a higher term premium.”

Why does this lead to higher term premium and not lower?

Read the whole paragraph.

“In theory, assets earn a low (or negative) risk premium if they tend to perform well when the economy is weak.”

Here you have a situation where asset is performing well with growth -“positively correlated with growth” - and therefore a higher premium
