One perspective:

"Printed documents (ahem) are only .003% of the total. If you're only
managing paper records, I think you may want to expand your realm."

Another Perspective:

Globally, paper and paperboard production capacity is forecast to grow from
333.6 million metric tons in 1998 to 348.1 million metric tons in 2001, an
increase of 14.5 million metric tons (about 4%) over those three years.

Certainly no room for complacency but still a job of work to be had.
