- Wakefield System
The Wakefield Plan was a system for colonisation developed by Edward Gibbon Wakefield. It used fixed prices for colonial land to subsidise further immigration. The South Australia Company and the New Zealand Company both developed land settlement schemes along Wakefield's lines, although neither fully adopted Wakefield's position.
