Abstract

This document describes two pedagogical tools developed for teaching applied microeconomics, specifically the issues related to concentration, dominance, stability and asymmetry of firms. The tools make a compilation of several concentration and stability indexes used in the literature since 1945. Among the benefits of the applications are the ease and agility to perform comparative analyzes of intersectorial and/or intertemporal type in a simple and agile way; and the use of unconventional concentration and stability measures.

Keywords
