I'm relatively new to investing, and although I have a general understanding of how traditional and Roth IRA's work, I do have one question. Has anyone done a mathematical comparison of the difference between taxation upon withdrawal (traditional IRA) and taxation before contribution (Roth IRA)? I would imagine that would have some effect on the capital gains over time, but I can't figure out exactly what the difference would be. Is anyone aware of a resource that shows the differences with early and late taxation?
