Its getting more expensive to die

Demand for funeral services is increasing as death rates climb, but supply is hampered by staffing problems caused by silly licensure requirements:
...the primary reason students reject a funeral career is the embalming requirement.
Fortunately, there is an easy solution: replace licensure with voluntary certification. Give consumers the option of paying for the embalming training.  If they want it they will pay for it.  

Historically, licensure was adopted as a barrier to entry that raised prices (a dirty way of creating a sustainable competitive advantage).
