Professor Of Shiny Surfaces Misquoted To Comic Effect

"Because of an editing error, an article on Monday about scholars who study paperwork misstated, in some editions, a word used by Craig Robertson, an associate professor of media and screen studies at Northeastern University, to describe a phenomenon exemplified by the history of the filing cabinet and the passport. He said they were part of the 'paperization' of everyday life in the early 20th century, not the 'pauperization.'"

I had to renew my passport a few weeks ago. The cost was insane. I would say pauperization is appropriately used.
