Deregulation is the process by which governments removed selected
regulations on business in order to encourage the theorical efficient
operation of markets. Deregulation is different from liberalization, because
a liberalized market, allowing plural or infinital players, can be
regulated, to protect specially the end consumer rights, specially to
prevent de facto or law-allowed oligopolies.

United States

Deregulation was a major trend in the United States in the last quarter of
the twentieth century. A number of major deregulation initiatives were
passed. Some of these were withdrawn quickly (but not quickly enough to
avoid major problems), including the deregulation of savings and loans.
American savings banks, which were permitted to lend unfettered, had their
depositors funds insured by the federal government, creating a moral hazard.
Others have been considered more widely successful, including deregulation
of transportation, the gas market, and the electricity market. At the
beginning of the twenty-first century, the media market was significantly deregulated.
