Abstract

This Article provides a detailed discussion of the economics of inclusionary zoning and finds that these lawyers' "economic" defense of inclusionary zoning is severely flawed. The Article is organized as follows: Part II gives a background on inclusionary zoning, such as where it is practiced and how many units it has created. Part III provides an overview of the economics of inclusionary zoning. Part IV responds to the articles that contest the standard economic analysis of inclusionary zoning. Part V concludes.
