Formatted abstract
This thesis examines whether the deregulation of the Australian banking system resulted in a loss of allocative efficiency. Basis economic theory argues that an increase in competition will improve the efficiency of any market I however the special position of the banking industry with its problem of asymmetric information refute this basis concept ~ After examining the data of the four major banks and the financial industry the conclusion is reached that deregulation is at least partially responsible for the misallocation of funds during the eighties 0 Finally the implications of this result is considered.
