  1. While they continue to make housing more expensive with additional building/code/environmental regulations (like forced installation of solar as one example) they wonder why the un-affordability in housing increases.

  2. I would disagree on your analysis of building codes and attention to sustainable energy as causing unaffordable housing. I would pin it on the greed and unfettered focus on housing as a source of investment and money-making at fault. Everything connected to basic living in this country (healthcare, food, housing) is tied to nothing but money-making, and not need or common good. And yes, I do believe that capitalism can do both.
