Chinese Works of Art Explode in New Metrics

The Wall Street Journal hints that Mei Moses has a new index:

The newly launched Mei-Moses Traditional Chinese Works of Art Index would have risen by a factor of 3.7 times since the end of 2000. That compares with a roughly flat performance in the S&P 500 and a 61% return in the broader Mei-Moses All Art Index. Chinese art even outperformed the red-hot postwar and contemporary category, which has tripled.
