Occupational licensing has had a curious and unusual history both in the U.S. and other nations. During some periods it was virtually nonexistent, but now in the U.S., it is growing rapidly and has developed into a stealth form of regulation.

In addition, he’ll outline the economic effects of occupational licensing on mobility, wage determination, prices and the quality of services delivered.
