To address this problem we derive a generalized HHI formula (GHHI) based on the investors¿ degree of control over each firm. We test alternative definitions of this control with actual data from the Spanish electricity sector and show that recent decisions in this industry, particularly the failed merge between the largest firms, Endesa and Iberdrola, could have been affected had the GHHI been used by the competition agency.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/77161||Source:||Documentos de Trabajo Conjuntos: Facultades de Ciencias Económicas y Empresariales (6), p. 1-25||URL:||http://dialnet.unirioja.es/servlet/articulo?codigo=1251488|
