Interesting but one big issue

This is a lot of fun to listen to, however, Mr Hoops is difficult to hear. I really want to hear his thoughts but he tends to stop enunciating at the end of his sentences and crams in a bunch of words that are unintelligible. Please help him with a better mic or some feedback to speak more clearly and loudly. Thank you.

Roth vs. Traditional 401k

This episode mentioned that if the tax rates are the same at the time of contribution vs. the time of withdrawal - the variance between Roth and traditional is 0. This is true for your contributions but this doesn’t take into account that your earnings are tax free in Roth 401k if they are a qualified distribution (likely the majority are qualified).

On the traditional side - earnings will be taxable.
