Factors such as the extent of "liar loans" revealed by the banking royal commission, the black economy, and rampant insurance fraud and theft from shops suggest that Australia is a nation of cheats. The forgone tax revenue from the $A25bn-a-year black economy, for example, is much greater than tax evasion by large companies. For many people in a nation founded by petty criminals, the real crime arising from cricket’s ball-tampering scandal may be not the plot itself but the fact that Smith, Warner and Bancroft did it live on international television.
