Greater than one and less than infinity

A snippet from the IB Economics textbook: “greater than one and less than infinity”. Isn’t everything less than infinity?!

UPDATE: Apologies for sixth-former-me, I now realise that infinity is not a number, but a limit, and so while every number in the reals is less than infinity, a limit (including the PED, I suppose) may be infinity.
