Land of Typos, Part Exasperation

From a research report:
“The report further suggests that the reliance on debt financing further exasperates the issue and that capital needs of the antiquated system are growing faster than revenues.”
I believe the author meant that debt financing would exacerbate (i.e., increase) the issue, not exasperate (i.e., frustrate) the issue.
I always get a little flutter in my stomach when I catch these kind of “gotchas” as I’m copyediting. They’re so easy to miss.
