OK. Looks like I made a big mistake.

I'm not sure. Perhaps if you said why you find this scary, there could be a good discussion on it, but with just the link and your title, there's not much to go on.

Perhaps people are not saving enough. Perhaps they are saving a ton, just not at Vanguard. Perhaps they don't have their retirement savings in an IRA or 401k, or at least not all in the same one, and so have lots of small balances.

There are lots of reasons why people might have small savings at Vanguard, but without some additional context from you on why this was scary and interesting to you, I'm not sure how to have much of a discussion.
