JULIUS VOGEL'S IMMIGRATION SCHEME, 1870s
From approximately 1870 through 1875, the government of Julius Vogel sought vast
amounts of money from overseas lenders to fund public works and immigration
The money obtained allowed the central government to provide free & assisted
passage to huge numbers of immigrants from the United Kingdom.
The scheme was eventually abandoned when it was realised that trying to spend
one's way out of bad economic times wasn't working and the country was in dire
