Why do we need whistleblowers?

The New York Times business section ran an article last month about the importance of critics and whistleblowers. Why are they so valuable?

Because there is noticeably less fraud and better behavior company-wide after bad behavior has been exposed.

We may never be able to calculate exactly how much, but Levees.org’s constant and eternal vigilance regarding the Army Corps of Engineers has a pay-off that will almost certainly result in lives saved.

Levees.org wins every time the corps is reminded that the truth about the Federal Flood in New Orleans must be told.

As we begin 2017, there can be no doubt that there is closer oversight on corps water projects both in Greater New Orleans and all over the country. If not the world.
