The Ama Is Like A Guild System

a: The ama ~
b: a guild system

What: "But let us consider where licensing came from. Licensing for doctors came from the AMA. The AMA was a means to limit doctors from competition by restricting their supply. The AMA is like a guild system. They are a monopoly that controls licensing, indeed, they were even sued for anti-trust violations. "
