Whistleblowers at Work

"Whistleblowers helped authorities recover at least $9.3 billion from health-care providers accused of defrauding states and the federal government, according to an analysis of [DPJ] records. Private citizens with inside knowldge of wrongdoing now initiate more than 90% of the department's lawsuits focusing on health-care fraud", my emphasis, WSJ, 2 September 2008.

"More than 90%". Wow. Do the FBI and DOJ do anything, or just wait for whistleblowers to show up? Imagine if this happened on Wall Street. We might see some indictments of serious players as opposed to nobodys.
