Dick (1877-1934) studied Italian, French and English literature at the University of Bern. He worked as a teacher, but kept studying English literature and became interested in economics, in particular in financial issues. He was known in Basel as a defender of the theories of Silvio Gesell, which he developed on his own. He wrote The Interest Standard of Currency (1925) and The Problem of Interest in its Relation to Currency and Debt (1929).
