Do we pay because of efforts done by the maker? We bought things in exchange for money. But where do we get money? It is from the labor we put on. It is from the service we provide and the title we have acquired for us to become one of the professionals. For those who can't work, they rely on the givers, the ones who do the work and receive a monetary value. Money came from the earth's resources. It is given freely right? But we acquire it through hardwork. Never it becomes free to us. Nowadays, it is a necessity for us to survive. We would be lucky if it be given without us sweating to get some. Or was it made to enable humans to continue and discover worthy activities that would lead us to live comfortable lives since most of the inventions are made just to satisfy us, for a 'better' world. But wherever or whatever we do, we can never really be contented as long as we live.

Money came from the earth's resources. That could be highly debatable. The concept of value may have at one time been directly related to it, but today, there is really nothing 'backing up' the concept of money. Money, actually, isn't 'worth' anything. I make this point as such: If only one person had ALL the money in the world, what could they use it for? If no one else wanted any, and were perfectly happy to use barter/exchange of service for goods received, no matter how much money that person had, they couldn't buy anything with it.
