Why MarketUrbanism doesn’t like inclusionary zoning

Inclusionary zoning is a hot legislative topic – but does it work? Stephen Smith at MarketUrbanism tries to logic and data his way into a negative answer:

Proponents claim that inclusionary zoning an effective way to create affordable housing and income/racial diversity in otherwise segregated neighborhoods, but I see many negative unintended consequences. The fundamental problem that I see is that while it definitely benefits those who are lucky enough to get affordable units (i.e., those with the most experience with the welfare state, who know how to work the system), it has negative net consequences for every single other person in the housing market.
