In 1969 R.H. Bing asked the following question: Is there a compact two-dimensional polyhedron with the fixed point property which has even Euler characteristic? In this paper we prove that there are no spaces with these properties and abelian fundamental group. We also show that the fundamental group of such a complex cannot have trivial Schur multiplier.
