Here are comments from listeners:
"Compounding tax drag" is a good term for a concept I have mathematically proven to several clients making the decision to invest in a ROTH IRA. Many feel they are in the top bracket and can only go down. But, the fact remains even at a lower tax bracket, the ROTH offers other flexibility.

I learned an aspect of determining a factor (IRMAA) that is relevant in Roth IRA conversions that I did not know before.

It helped me to understand the L.T. benefits to IRA conversions going on through 20yrs after retirement.

It was interesting to see the spreadsheet with different tax rates and rates of return, tax drag, etc. I had thought that the benefit from a profitability standpoint for a conversion would have been greater and accumulated more quickly.

Roth conversions are beneficial even in constant tax rate case due to tax drag

There are so many, such as; back door Roth IRA, saving on conversion from Traditional to Roth, and ETC.

Watch for IRMAA; Look at Health / Life Expectancy; Look at potential state issues now vs lower or no state tax later
