Inclusionary development as a terrible millstone? According to this Oregonian op ed, anyway.

This is fresh.  As of *today*.  This runs counter to most things I assume to be true about inclusionary zoning, and it’s so new I’m still reading it, but it seems to like to play devil’s advocate.

Having said that, I have read that even the definition of “affordable” can be arbitrary when the topic of affordable housing comes up, and I have also seen in some documentaries and read in recent articles that the reaction to mixing social strata in close proximity is discomfort and resentment.  Make of that what you will.
