Annotation

Monadelphia means a single brotherhood. Mostly an essay, but there is a description of a model town for 6000 people and the conclusion shows the eutopia in operation (64-70/Claeys 185-90). There is no money and no individual property. All goods are freely taken to and from a central warehouse. See also his A Lecture on the Currency, In Which Is Explained the Represented Time Note Medium of Exchange, in Connection With a Universal System of Banking; Delivered at the Barnet Institute. London: Willoughby & Co., [1850]; A Lecture Upon the Science of Labour, In Which Is Explained a Time Note Currency, Based on a National Banking System For All Classes Delivered at the Barnet Institute. London: Ptd. for Jackson and Keeson, 1857; and “What Is Money” or Man’s Birthright “Time,” The Only Real Wealth; Its Representative Forming the True Medium of Exchange. London: Effingham Wilson, [1849?], all of which suggest time notes.
