I posted it as I found it.There IS no more context.I didn't write the article.I just posted it.And apparently that was a big mistake.I think what folks were trying to discern is the overarching point, that's all. For example, we could use Vanguard as a proxy for "your investment, savings and retirement assets" and then compare those to the average of peers. I think the results would be pretty obvious though. Most people on this website tend to save more and be healthier from a financial point of view than the average american. Of course that's not saying much but it is at least a conclusion. I think the thing that threw people off was the title and the capitalization of THIS. It hints at a deeper conclusion but then one is not forthcoming. So, taking it from there I don't know if $54K is bad or good for an average american 35 year old. I'd imagine it's probably good comparatively because Americans - in general - are crappy savers.
