16. E-M claims "no constant mean bias conjecture"
Dear "Truth is All",

Your model appears very similar to what USCV has been doing. I would guess that it would produce the same result, i. e. that the constant mean bias conjecture, and particularly the K=.56 and B=.5 hypothetical, cannot possibly explain the E-M data.

I have done some statistical analysis (in previous post) that shows the same thing.

In any case the argument is now irrelevant as E-M has stated that:

"There is no constant mean bias conjecture on our part. This is wholly USCV's invention."

I have an email from them to this effect, it contains other personal
references so I cannot make it public - unless I get permission from the sender.

It appears that you have considerable expertise at quantitative analysis. Would you like to join our list? Please contact me if you are interested. We could then subject your model to further investigation.
