From Erin Brockovich to Enron, whistleblowers who “challenge abuses of power that betray the public trust” have proven to be an unfortunate necessity in modern business culture. Their efforts to report crimes, fraud, and dangers to public health and safety have saved millions of lives and billions of dollars of shareholder value – and had we heeded the warnings of whistleblowers, perhaps disasters such as the Bernie Madoff scandal and the Lehman Brothers meltdown could have been averted. Recent federal legislation in finance and health reform have cemented legal protections and mechanisms for whistleblowing. This book provides a thorough guide and history to the whistleblower's legal rights. The ultimate survival guide, it provides advice on getting help and finding allies, warns that retaliation is often the reward for "committing the truth" and shows how to weather the storm. With extensive legal texts, sample letters, resources, and information on upcoming whistleblower reforms, this is the ultimate source on the subject.

Resisting Corporate Corruption teaches business ethics in a manner very different from the philosophical and legal frameworks that dominate graduate schools. The book offers twenty-eight case studies and nine essays that cover a full range of business practice, controls and ethics issues. The essays discuss the nature of sound financial controls, root causes of the Financial Crisis, and the evolving nature of whistleblower protections. The cases are framed to instruct students in early identification of ethics problems and how to work such issues within corporate organizations. They also provide would-be whistleblowers with instruction on the challenges they’d face, plus information on the legal protections, and outside supports available should they embark on that course. Some of the cases illustrate how ‘The Young are the Most Vulnerable,’ i.e. short service employees are most at risk of being sacrificed by an unethical firm. Other cases show the ethical dilemmas facing well-known CEOs and the alternatives they can employ to better combine ethical conduct and sound business strategy. Through these case studies, students should emerge with a practical toolkit that better enables them to follow their moral compass. Finally, the cases provide an in depth look at how a corporation becomes progressively corrupted (Enron), how the Financial Crisis was rooted in ethical decay at institutions as diverse as Countrywide, Goldman Sacks, Citigroup, Fannie Mae and Moody’s, and at the ethical challenges that persist in the post-Crisis, post-Dodd-Frank environment.

Ethics—in all its exemplary and exhausting forms—matters. It deals with the most gripping question in public life: "What is the right thing to do?" Now in a thoroughly revised second edition, Public Service Ethics: Individual and Institutional Responsibilities introduces readers to this personally relevant and professionally challenging field of study. No matter the topic—the necessity of ethics, intriguing human behavior experiments, the role of ethics codes, whistleblowing incidents, corruption exposés, and the grandeur and decay of morality—there is no shortage of controversy. The book enables readers to: appreciate why ethics is essential to leadership; understand and apply moral development theory at the individual and organizational levels of analysis; differentiate between ethical problems and ethical dilemmas, and design creative ways to deal with them; develop abilities to use moral imagination and ethical reasoning—to appraise, argue, and defend an ethical position, and cultivate individual and institutional initiatives to improve ethical climate and infrastructure. Authors James Bowman and Jonathan West capture reader interest by featuring learning objectives, skill-building material, discussion questions, and exercises in each chapter.? The authors’ narrative is user-friendly and accessible, highlighting dilemmas and challenging readers to "own" the book by annotating the pages with one’s own ideas and insights, then interacting with others in a live or virtual classroom to stretch one’s thinking about the management of ethics and ethics of management. The ultimate goal is to bolster students’ confidence and prepare them for the ethical problems they will face in the future, equipping them with the conceptual frameworks and context to approach thorny questions and behave ethically.

Whistleblowers and leakers have played a long and influential role in our history. For example, Samuel Shaw, a U.S. midshipman during the Revolutionary War, exposed the torture of British soldiers in 1777. His actions led to the first law protecting whistleblowers in the United States. More recently, Edward Snowden released top-secret National Security Administration (NSA) documents showing the extent of the U.S. surveillance program. His actions have been both criticized and praised. In this text, experts weigh in on the importance of whistleblowers and leakers, and the damage they might cause, so that readers can form their own opinions on this important issue.

Michael McCray has both his CPA and his law degree, and yet, in the mid 1990’s, those became obsolete when he was met with a decision that changed his life forever. That’s when he became a whistle blower. At the time, he was working at the United States Department of Agriculture, overseeing a Federal Empowerment Zone in Mississippi for the Clinton White House. There, McCray says he discovered mismanagement and corruption involving the main bureaucrats working for the zone. When McCray attempted to report this corruption, he says the system attempted to cover up his revelation and smear him in the process. Since that day, he’s become an advocate, activist, organizer, and now writer. McCray found himself at a cross roads within an organization that would soon begin to live in infamy for a few months at least, and become the main story everyone was talking about. The name of the organization is the Association for Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), and thousands of writers have broached the subject, but this story is different. That’s because it’s the first one told from the perspective of the whistle blower. As a whistle blower, McCray wasn’t merely a witness to the now recent history of ACORN, but he was an active player. McCray says that he wrote the book, ACORN 8—Race, Power and Politics, in conjunction with another ACORN whistle blower, Marcel Reid. Glenn Beck called Reid a modern day Rosa Parks, when he first introduced the ACORN story to the public. Reid was Beck’s main source back then and she headed up the DC Chapter of ACORN, which eventually went rogue. The Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) spoke exclusively with McCray, Reid, and the genius behind ACORN, Wade Rathke. Reid has been quoted often as saying of Rathke, “he’s an organic genius.” Meanwhile, McCray has described Rathke as diabolical. Rathke is arguably the greatest community organizer of all time, not a bad title considering some people consider Jesus himself a community organizer. The book details a period in McCray’s life in which he discovers a remarkably sophisticated case of mortgage fraud involving a national landmark in Atlanta, The Hotel Winecoff. McCray had become involved in organizing shortly after becoming a whistle blower. He attempted to expose the mortgage fraud using organizing contacts. Everyone told him to go to ACORN. ACORN did take on the issue only that’s just the beginning of the story. You’ll have to read the book to get the rest. In two short years, McCray went from partnering up with ACORN, to serving on its Georgia board, to serving on its national board, and finally to blowing the whistle on massive corruption. McCray would go on to become a founding member of ACORN 8 but the book tells the story of the first three parts of McCray’s experiences. The book describes ACORN as both an extremely effective organizing tool for low and moderate income individuals and as a deeply flawed institution in desperate need of reform by both Reid and McCray. The central theme both say, “it was an organization that was supposed to be about the members, but it’s really about the organizers, better yet the chief organizer, Wade Rathke.” Rathke denied that charge vociferously, “The organization has always been about the membership.” Rathke told SCLC that he considered McCray’s book another in a long line of hit jobs on his past organization and he couldn’t answer each one, even if he wanted to. The book delves into another area entirely, the 2008 Democratic Presidential nomination. That’s because McCray is also a seasoned political operative. McCray was raised in Arkansas, the birthplace of ACORN and home of the Clintons. He worked on their Presidential campaigns in 1992 and 1996. In 2008, he jumped at the chance to work on Senator Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign. In so doing, he created a perspective for himself, stunningly unique. He’s an African American community organizer working for the opponent of an African American community organizer who will during to course of the book pull off one of the greatest political coups, winning the Democratic nomination, of all time. McCray points out in the book that Obama won because Clinton underestimated him from the beginning. As evidence the group of Black politicos he led, The Buffalo Soldiers, weren’t brought into Iowa until weeks before the primary. Obama had his best troops on the ground months earlier. It’s a two pronged story that crescendos just as the world finds out that Dale Rathke, Wade Rathke’s brother, embezzled almost a million dollars. It was at that moment that the story exploded in America at large. Of course, as whistle blowers and national board members, Reid and McCray have vantage points no one else can claim. --Mike Volpe, SCLC Magazine, The Daily Caller, World Net Daily

Warum wir nur denen vertrauen sollten, die etwas zu verlieren haben Stehen wir für die Risiken ein, die wir verursachen? Zu viele der Menschen, die auf der Welt Macht und Einfluss haben, so Nassim Nicholas Taleb, müssen nicht wirklich den Kopf hinhalten für das, was sie tun und veranlassen. Intellektuelle, Journalisten, Bürokraten, Banker, ihnen vor allem wirft er vor, kein »Skin in the Game« zu haben. Weil sie den Preis nicht bezahlen müssen, wenn sie irren, fällen sie schlechte Entscheidungen. Taleb zeigt anhand vieler Beispiele, wie »Skin in the Game«, ein fundamentales Konzept des Risikomanagements, auf alle Bereiche unseres Lebens übertragen werden kann. Sein neues Buch, so provozierend und bahnbrechend wie »Der Schwarze Schwan«, fordert uns heraus, alles, was wir über Risiko und Verantwortung in Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft zu wissen glauben, neu zu denken.
