You're picking and choosing from Alex's words and then extrapolating out that Alex things "no regs" is the right solution. From the entirety of what Alex has said it is clear that he/she doesn't think that. So instead of actually addressing differing views on the question at hand, you choose to change the argument to he-said-she-said-what's-your-position.

For example, you are misinterpreting the following:
My point is simple: constraints on supply mean that the market is not operating efficiently. Our current housing market is not efficient at all.
"constraints on supply" does not mean "regulations," it means the fact that we are not able to build enough supply to meet the current demand.

It is clear from just looking at the DC housing market is that we are not building enough housing supply to meet demand. That is evident just from looking at how prices are going up, how older (but completely livable) buildings are being completely gutted and redone as new apartments, and so on. If we want to work on the affordability problem we must work to increase supply so that older stock can filter downmarket.
