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.
