Establishment of a commercial exchange bank and the concomitant ability to trade without money brings eutopia. The author was born in Germany and lived in France, Britain, Mexico, New Zealand and the US before returning to Germany. In New Zealand, where he lived from 1898 to 1905, he opened commercial exchange banks in Wellington and Auckland. He was also involved with the Topolobampo community in Mexico. See also 1896 Flürsheim and the two other 1899 Flürscheims.
