Any shortage can be mitigated using free market forces. If you want more whistleblowers, you have to create an economic incentive to blow the whistle. I never said we could 100% eliminate the risk of being a whistleblower. But we can nudge the risk in the right direction, and we can make it profitable to make the world a better place. Your objection amounts to "your solution is not 100% perfect." That's not a reasonable objection.

False Claims Act/Qui tam lawsuits provide good financial incentives for federal whistle blowers, but you hetter be 100% sure you a) have overwhelming proof to prevail, b) can support yourself for years while your case is litigated, c) have top notch and uncorruptible counsel because the government lawyers will grind you up and have virtually limitiess funding, and d) say your prayers that it will all be worth the losses to life and living I mentioned in earlier reply. I am not saying an imperfect idea is useless, just questioning how helpful it can possibly be. I have experience with government whistle blowers. Not a path any reasonable person will undertake in most cases.
