1. GM has over $218 billion listed in loan receivable on top of its assets, the loans which is made represent the amount expects to collect in the future. This type of asset report is exactly like the assets bank's uses, therefore we see here, even though GM is a manufacturing and car sale business they also work like a bank. In my opinion, GM's have utilised this approach to cover for the lost that they've made in the main operating field, manufacturing and car sales. Recent reports have proven that GM has been losing its share in the US as well as all over the world. 2. The difference ($476.078 - $460.442 = $15.636) represent the owner’s equity of General Motor.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
