a world without money

i was on facebook and someone's status said "Why do people need to work?? Why can't there be money dropping down??" and it got me thinking. it made me wonder, what happened if money fell from the sky?

then ppl wouldnt be working as hard bc there really is no motivation to work. or ppl would only work what they wanna do. and do it with passion instead of responsibility... and then there will be no mail man or garbage man... however, i like to think there will probably be less crimes (as i believe most of them involved greed). and power may not have that big of a slide as we all have a lot of money...

i decided to ask my coworker what he thought. and he's like "i think it would be more of an interesting conversation if money didnt exist bc ppl are greedy..." and he went about how ppl would say "money dropping from this area are all mine" kinda thing.

then i thought... "a world without money..." didnt we used to live like that? i'll trade you my corn for your carrot. we'll still be working but for something else. for another purpose. we might view and respect things differently bc we're creating them...?

but then wouldnt we just be greedy over something else that's high in demand, just like how it is right now with money? is it just in human nature to be greedy? to want to be better than others?
