    You could be a criminal for paying $10,000 in cash

    Proposed changes to laws could make people criminals if they pay more than $10,000 in cash for goods or services. It's obviously designed to crack down on the black economy but it also intrudes on our rights to pay for what we buy in the way we choose. Is it good or bad legislation ...
