The failure of the market to deliver affordable medium density infill suggests housing supply innovation requires economic actors who are able to commit to the supply of affordable housing and the most obvious candidates are consumers themselves. The solution is ‘deliberative development’ which takes insights from ‘market design’, an offshoot of game theory economics, to minimise the key risk in the development process: uncertain demand.
