Episode Description:

The worldwide recession has provided a public call for greater transparency and accountability in financial markets. But the complexity and detail of these makets and companies make identifying wrongdoing difficult - to the point that often only insiders can identify when malfeasance occurs. What issues face international (and national) financial whistleblowers? Why is the only person being sent to jail for the recent UBS scandal - which involved illegal off-shore tax havens - the whistleblower, Brad Birkenfeld? Birkenfeld's disclosures allowed the government to recoup almost $800 million in fines, penalties and back taxes. We speak with experts from the Tax Justice Network and the Government Accountability Project.
