Everyone loves walking on the beach or taking a trek down a forested trail. These 'assets' of natural environments are freely available to most everyone. However, what happens when we extract raw materials from nature but place no value on them until commodities that can be sold on a market are produced? How do you economically value clear air, water, trees, wildlife or landscapes? Environmental economist, Pavan Sukhdev presents a variety of ways to quantifying environmental benefits and services. Maybe you will think differently the next time you take a walk in the mountains.
