Currency in the New Economy

In eighth grade, my history teacher was Mr. Moriarty. The first day of class, he informed us that he graded every assignment we did, but your final grades were based entirely on attitude and effort. He was an older teacher, a few years shy of retirement. I still remember his gnarled fingers pointing at the class as he repeated his mantra of attitude and effort several times a class. 

I thought this was silly. The world doesn't operate based on attitude and effort, why should this class?

Except that he was right. And he was well ahead of his time. 

In a world where you can Google anything, expertise is less important. 

What's left?

Attitude and effort.
