What are the best index ETF's?
I'm not a fan of index investing, but I talked my dad into taking his money out of the hands of "financial advisors" or whoever, and he's asking me how to invest with a minimum of effort. I told him to get broad index ETF's covering the gamut of asset classes and every stock in the market, you get the idea. Then he asked me to be more specific, and I'm passing the buck to you all.
Which index/asset class ETF's are the best, and why? Or if my premise is wrong, explain.
