Why is it that anesthesiologists get paid much more that other specialties??? Is it because there is a shortage of them or is it just a hard specialty to learn???

I feel a statistical quote coming on. "Well, the av. FP gets paid blah, but the av. anes. gets paid double blah."

And the average radiologist, pathologist, opthalmologist, ENT, Neurosurgeon, ortho surgeon, dermatologist, GI doc, Cardiologist get paid triple blah...
