Formatted abstract This paper examines the contention raised by tow pioneering economists, John Gurley and Edward Shaw, than back expansion takes place at the expense of the Non-Bank Financial Intermediaries(NBFI). The impetus for the expansion of the Australian banking sector has followed from the recent Commonwealth Government moves towards deregulating the financial markets. After examining the removal of restrictive banking regulations and the credibility of the efficiency arguments proposed in favour of deregulation, a number of key predictions will be established to test the application of Gurley and Shaw’s theory to the Australian banking sector. The predictions are analized and found to hold true for the Australian case study. Following the removal of restrictive monetary controls over the banking sector, banks have expanded at the expense of the NBFI.
