HERFINDAHL INDEX: A measure of concentration of the production in an industry that's calculated as the sum of the squares of market shares for each firm. This is an alternative method of summarizing the degree to which an industry is oligopolistic and the relative concentration of market power held by the largest firms in the industry.

This period of stagnation prompted radical changes in the way government viewed it's role in the economy and lead to our modern study of macroeconomics.
