Dear Mike

I remembered you mentioned about Bayesian approach to MASEM in discussion part of your article.
I think this topic is very intriguing to me and to unknown others. Could you detail more about the issue here?
If you don't mine, I hope you to recommend some direct reference on this issue.
Personally I ask questions as follows,
what might be advantages of Bayesian approach in comparison to TSSEM or GLS?
In Bayesian, is WLS replaced by Bayesian process? or just modified by it? or other than the replacement?
Can I understand Bayesian approach into MASEM on the basis of typical Bayesian SEM?
What might be difference that should be borne in mind?

Sorry for being too discursive.
Excuse me, I just want to know more about Bayesian MASEM particularly.
and I consider it as a worthy question hopefully.
I look forward to your response.

Dear James, Since I have not

Dear James,

Since I have not done anything on this topic, I cannot offer any useful advices. MASEM is basically a special case of SEM. Techniques on Bayesian SEM, e.g., Lee (2007), should be relevant.
