Das Bankensystem

Prof. Fekete ist ein Verfechter des Goldstandards und ein scharfer Kritiker des gegenwärtigen Geldsystems, das auf uneinlösbaren Währungen beruht.
Er arbeitet im Rahmen der von Carl Menger inspirierten Theorie der freien Marktwirtschaft und betrachtet seine Zinstheorie als Erweiterung von Mengers Werk. Menger befürwortete die Theorie des direkten Tauschs, der in den indirekten Tausch übergeht.
.
Professor Fekete verficht ebenfalls die Theorie der direkten Wandlung von Einkommen in Vermögen und von Vermögen in Einkommen (sprich: Gold-Hortung und -Enthortung), welche ebenfalls in den indirekten Tausch übergeht (sprich: Kauf und Verkauf von Gold-Anleihen).
Außerdem gilt Fekete als Verfechter der Real-Bills Doktrin von Adam Smith, welche er die „Goldwechsel-Doktrin“ nennt.
