This article considers how and why the globalfinancial crisis happened and the extent to which deregulation and globalisation, in opening up the financial markets to competition, may have fuelled the crisis. This article also explores the impact of the global financial crisis on competition policy and regulation and discusses whether some form of coordination between the world's competition authorities and the development of a set of multilateral competition rules might be one way forward in the aftermath of the crisis.
