The article reports on the increased sales of automobiles manufactured by General Motors (GM) in Asia. While the automobile manufacturer's North American sales have dropped hard in the last three years, they have been rising abroad, particularly in developing markets like China, India and parts of Latin America. GM made $2.1 billion in pretax operating profit in 2007, almost enough to offset the $2.7 billion it lost selling cars and home mortgages in North America.
