"I have found the Mei Moses Indices to be indispensable tools in
appraisal assignments. In a field which requires the appraiser
to make many subjective judgments, the indices provide clear

possible valuation conclusions. I enthusiastically endorse the
use of the indices and will gladly recommend them to my many
students and colleagues."
