Retirement confidence surveys remind me of Chicken Little. You remember her. She gathered a long line of followers who believed her warning that the sky is falling. Ultimately, she and her followers were so distracted by their fears that the fox led them to his den and something far worse than something falling out of the sky happened to them.

Today's survey from Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) points out that a record number of people -- 27% -- think they won't have enough money to live comfortably in retirement. If you do the math, that leaves 73% of people who are at least modestly confident that they will be able to retire and avoid eating Kibbles & Bits.
