Iron Mike, Took your advice and looked up "double taxation" I think I understand. Takes me a while but I think I get it.
Example. You take out a $10,000 401 loan and put it under your mattress for 5 years.

"This is because the loan repayments, including the interest, will b...more
Unless I am reading this wrong, this article is incorrect. The paragraph on "Double Taxation" say's "the loan repayments, including the interest, will be repaid with amounts that have already been taxed and will be taxed when withdrawn from the retirement account."
Then , in "assumption No. 2, it says that the $108...more
