I'm only 20, so I won't be retiring for at least 45 years, but I know the power of compound interest. I'm thinking about starting a Roth IRA, but I have little time to watch individual stocks. What's the best way to invest $2000 that doesn't require my attention? I've thought about an S&P 500 index fund, but is there anything that will beat that?
