Does owning Allston make Harvard (or Allston) happier?

Derek Bok, the two-time president of Harvard, has just published a new book that asks "How might happiness research affect government policy in the United States--and beyond?" If happiness research should be applied to federal governments, let's also apply it to the governance of large corporations. How can Harvard shape its own policies and use its position in Allston and Brighton to maximize happiness in both the Harvard and Allston/Brighton communities?

If decision makers at Harvard spent a few minutes pondering 'What policies in Allston would produce the greatest happiness?', would Western Ave look the way it does?
