Answer:

For a personal interview (one you did with another person), you'll need the interview subject's name, "Personal interview", and the date, like so: Gilmore, Edmund. Personal interview. 17 July 2019. For a published interview you read online, follow this example: Myles, Eileen. Interviewd by Carmen Rios. Autostraddle., 27 November 2012. https://www.autostraddle.com/idol-worship-tenish-questions-with-lesbian-poet-eileen-myles-149558. Accessed 17 July 2019. Were you looking to cite a different kind of interview?

Answer:

You could start with the CIA World Factbook entry for Nicaragua, available here: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/nu.html The CIA World Factbook is updated every year and contains accurate, timely information about every country in the world. You'll find maps, charts, statistics, and short descriptions about Nicaragua's people and culture, economy, and more. What do you think? Were you looking for something completely different?

Question:

Should I get a Roth or Traditional IRA?

Inactive

Answer:

Both the Roth and Traditional IRA are secure, prudent ways to invest for your retirement. The main difference between the two types of accounts is the tax implications. With a Roth IRA, you will pay taxes on the money you invest now, but withdraw the money tax-free in retirement. With a Traditional IRA, you will not pay taxes on the money you invest now, which can reduce your overall tax burden. Of course, it would be great to pay less taxes now, but with the Traditional IRA you will owe taxes when you withdraw the money in retirement. If you think you will make little money after you retire, you might end up making so little that you do not owe taxes on your income, including the funds you withdraw from your Traditional IRA. It's always a bit of a gamble to guess at your income in retirement. Most people would really benefit from tax-free money in retirement, as offered by investing in your Roth IRA. Either way, it's always a smart idea to invest for your retirement.
