<<<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? >>>

I'm not being sarcastic or condisending, but go to school. The Fool's School. Read about the growth screens from the Foolish Workshop. Two easy, non-time consuming screens with S&P 500 beating results are RP4 and Keystone. They wouldn't take more than 15 minutes per year to do. If you can't spare 15 minutes per year, you're either too busy are don't have your priorities in order.
