REDNECK EMERGENCE.

Nolan Gray of Market Urbanism suggests that relatively nonintrusive private governance, as manifested in mobile home parks, might be something for Wise Experts to consider.
Where policymakers deem top-down regulation necessary, it should be designed to support rather than replace emergent orders that low-income communities have developed over time. When we stop treating low-income communities as objects of scorn, to be subjected to top-down, paternalistic planning, we might find that we have a lot to learn from them.
Everything else is commentary.  Particularly in light of the failures that have followed wherever the Wise Experts have gone.
