Is currency inefficient?

Consider the vast amounts of money spent in our current economy that either decrease or at best hold constant the skills and competency of purchasing parties. Convenience for convenience's sake (i.e. not for efficiency's sake) is a mind killer. It seems more rational to me to work hard to increase the skills and competencies of those who could potentially be useful to me in the future while at the same time increasing my own skills and competencies than to work hard for expanded rights over physical property or pure luxury services with no value to them other than the immediate gratification they bring.

If you get around in a car how do you fill up your gas tank? Do you barter at every service station you stop at?

Your mode of operation is most appropriate to a primitive economy with few goods and services traded.
