The Market Box embodies a systematic quantification of the world's natural resources. Monetary values are assigned to anything -- even that which is not bought or sold within a market. We assign prices to a standing forests, the watershed services they provide, and quantify the value public land. These values are tangible to capitalist decision-making but ignore the ethical nuances and complications that arise when describing the world through money and an inherently anthropocentric perspective.
