Blog: Dave LeggettGM revamp won't be fast or easy

It may be looking increasingly likely that General Motors is heading toward some kind of managed bankruptcy in the US, but the full implications of such a step are far from being quantified.

If the judgement is that Chapter 11 is more likely to get a better outcome for GM than negotiating with stakeholders outside of it, that does not mean that a whole lot of pain is suddenly avoided.

There would also be a big blow to investors' confidence generally as the shock waves of such a big bankruptcy reverberate around the world.

If there's to be a manipulation of the US bankruptcy codes in the cause of sustaining a viable US auto industry out of what has the potential to work in the long-term, it certainly won't be plain sailing.
