In this clip from RT’s Capital Account, Joel Bowman blows the whistle on the whistleblowing process itself — specifically, the none-too-surprising biases of the process. Pro-government whistleblowing: good; anti-government whistleblowing: bad.
To illustrate this bias, Joel and Lauren revisit the tale of “two Bradleys” — Bradley Birkenfeld, convicted tax-cheater-turned-whistleblower for the IRS, and PFC Bradley Manning, Iraq War-veteran-turned-whistleblower against the Pentagon.
Joel first examined this alarming contrast here in The Daily Reckoning last month. (“A Tale of Two Whistleblowers”) “One [whistleblower],” Joel remarked, “was awarded $100 million from the United States Internal Revenue Service for revealing information to the government that was decidedly not in private citizens’ interest. The other has been locked in a cage for 28 months, and counting, for revealing information to private citizens that was decidedly not in the government’s interest.”
Joel and Lauren revisit this story below:
It's hard to believe that more than ten years have gone by since we began writing The Daily Reckoning out of a Paris office back in July of 1999?
Since then, a lot has changed. We have seen the dot com boom and bust... a massive expansion of credit...real estate mania and meltdown?and epic highs and lows in the markets.
Nothing about the past ten years has been boring. And we have been there throughout, trying to help readers make some sense out of our global economy. And hopefully providing a few laughs along the way.
In short, we pen The Daily Reckoning each day -- for free -- to show you how to live well in uncertain times. We aim to make each article the most entertaining 15-minute read of your day.
I think the subject matter is very interesting. Would it be possible to provide the transcript for when you post videos? It is difficult for me to wait and listen while people stammer, hum, and stumble in their speaking. I can read about 10x’s faster than people speak. Therefore, I only listened to about 5 seconds of this. Again, a transcript would be very helpful. Thanks!

Dow Theory is a straightforward measure of market strength. And obviously it'll be late triggering changes in trends. After all, this is a low-tech timing tool. But it's important to take a step back from the day-to-day volatility of individual stocks to see how these indexes are reacting to longer-term buying and selling pressures.
One day in the House of Representatives a bill was taken up appropriating money for the benefit of a widow of a distinguished naval officer. Several beautiful speeches had been made in its support. Then Col. David Crockett arose, and spoke on the both nobility of charity and why it has absolutely no place within the government. Read on...
