I think it should be free. I saw a Ferrari today but I couldn't afford it. With free money, I would have a Ferrari.

Honestly, that is a rhetorical question . Money shouldn't be free. If money was free, what would we use as currency? Everything in the world would basically be free and money would lose its meaning. This should be pretty obvious if you look at from a different view.

Very few things can be described accurately as free. To be free an object must lack self-value and cost. The addition of either self-value, or cost negate the state of free. Economically the point of impartial money is so the receipt can be used as a point of natural self-value.

We understand you would like a Ferrari. However Ferrari may not want you as a customer so it may use the impartiality of the receipt of money as a way to meet that goal. This could be something as rhetorical as setting a personal drive goal outside of operating a machine.
