Paying freigeld or redeeming the corvée was spread only on few manors and used by few and obviously wealthier farmers.
Both redeeming the corvée and paying freigeld were more spread on the manors which fields were relatively small and which had many peasants.
It indicates that the transition to paying freigeld was favoured by the neighbourhood of economically livelier centres where peasants could sell their scanty products.

Zumindest für diejenigen, die es schaffen, in kleineren wirtschaftlichen Regionen den gierigen, "blutsaugenden" Euro durch ein gerechtes Tauschmittel zu ersetzen, das sich nicht lohnt, auf die Bank zu schaffen, denn da würde es nur weniger.
Freigeld verliert seinen Wert (5% pro Jahr), wenn es nicht als Tauschmittel benutzt wird, wozu es ja eigentlich da ist.
Na klar, das ist das genaue Gegenteil zur Zinswirtschaft und hilft, den Geldfluss und den Warenaustausch aufrecht zu erhalten.

His Collected Works (18 volumes, issued by the Publishing Company for Social Economy in Lütjenburg/Germany) show that the main intention of Gesell was to deliver the economic fundamentals for social justice and consequently for civil and international peace.
9), Gesell has convincingly proved that everybody needs free access to land ("Freiland") and money ("Freigeld") in order to make free use of his abilities and to establish a free and social economy ("Freiwirtschaft") in cooperation with others.
Gesell was the first economist who saw that Freiwirtschaft can only be realized, if land and money are common property administrated by the state.

 J.M. Keynes about Silvio Gesell
The first section of his standard work was published in 1906 at Les Hauts Geneveys, Switzerland, under the title 'Die Verwirklichung des Rechtes auf den vollen Arbeitsertrag', and the second section in 1911 at Berlin under the title 'Die neue Lehre vom Zins'.
The two together were published in Berlin and in Switzerland during the war (1916) and reached a sixth edition during his lifetime under the title 'Die natürliche Wirtschaftsordnung durch Freiland und Freigeld', the English version (translated by Mr Philip Pye) being called "The Natural Economic Order".
In April 1919 Gesell joined the short-lived Soviet cabinet of Bavaria as their Minister of Finance, being subsequently tried by court-martial.

The only way to have a stable currency without inflation and still keep the money in circulation he found, was to introduce a charge on idle money.
If necessary adjustments are done fast there can never be a run away inflation nor a run away deflation, but, of course, without demurrage on cash to keep it in circulation it will not be possible.
There were on the average only 5293 Schillings worth in circulation but because the full amount always stayed in circulation, it moved nearly three millions worth of goods in a year.

They can do so in a negative interest rate system, a system which has a zero or a small positive nominal interest rate on loaned money, but a "use fee" (negative interest rate) on money held or liquid deposits.
This is the "Schwundgeld" (shrinking money) or "Freigeld" proposal originally due to Silvio Gesell, discussed by Keynes in the GT.
Irving Fisher tried to get this implemented during the great depression in the form of "stamp scrip" (the fee was to be levied in the form of a stamp to be affixed to a bill each month for the bill to keep its value).

 Gedanken über heutiges Geld und "Freigeld"
Sie sind eine zwanghafte Folge des Zinsgeldes, das fallweise wertlos werden muss, weil es den verfügbaren Waren, die ihm den Gegenwert geben, durch Zins- und Zinseszinswachstum mengenmäßig immer schneller (exponentiell) davon läuft.
Silvio Gesell, der Entdecker des „Freigeldes“, machte einen Fehler.
Erst jetzt zeigen sich neue Wege auf, Freigeld auf Gutscheinbasis, ergänzend, zeitlich begrenzt und regional, einzuführen, ohne das gesetzliche Geldmonopol anzugreifen.

 The Political Economy of Silvio Gesell: A Century of Activism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Fluctuations of the market rate of interest around a new equilibrium point close to zero would allow a more effectively decentralized channeling of savings into appropriate investments.
Free Money (Freigeld), a medium of exchange liberated from the historical tribute of "basic interest," would be neutral in its impact on distribution, and could no longer disadvantage the producers and consumers.
Gesell envisaged that access to the complete proceeds of labor brought about by the elimination of "basic interest" would enable large sections of the population to give up wage- and salary-oriented employment and to work in a more autonomous manner in private and cooperative business organizations.

We should like to see the FAZ being introduced as a legal entity, a body of rights based on equality.
What Free Software is to copyright, the FAZ is to the banking network: just as the GNU/GPL license legally sanctions the right to copy, thus the FAZ legally proclaims the abolition of monetary accumulation, usury, and hoarding, by means of a currency yielding a negative rate of interest, better known as demurrage (see Freigeld?
In other words, economic paralysis is to be defeated by the adoption of a perishable means of payment, a means of payment that should be resurrected in the form corresponding to its real nature: a mere symbol: the symbol accompanying the exchanges, tangible and otherwise, of the free community.
