GUILD: In medieval European times, a collection of artisans or merchants in the same occupation or industry, often in a particular location. Guilds were the forerunners of modern craft unions. They typical set quality standards and criteria for entry into the profession.

COMPETITIVE MARKET

A market with a large number of buyers and sellers, such that no single buyer or seller is able to influence the price or control any other aspect of the market. That is, none of the participants have significant market control. A competitive market achieves efficiency in the allocation of scarce resources if no other market failures are present.
