The following is taken directly from a recent balance statement from
Goldman Sachs.  I left off the Shareholders' Equity portion to
simplify.  Can anyone tell me from this what GS's debt is?  My guess
would be "Short-term borrowings" plus "Long-term borrowings," but this
leaves me with a very high number.  Can anyone untangle this for me?

Liabilities and Shareholders' Equity                  
Short-term borrowings, including commercial paper           $ 38,230    
Payables to brokers, dealers and clearing organizations        1,739   
Payables to customers and counterparties                      89,932   
Securities loaned                                             11,359   
Securities sold under agreements to repurchase                36,784   
Obligation to return securities                                2,436   
Financial instruments sold, but not yet purchased, at fair 
value                                                         67,364
Other liabilities and accrued expenses                         5,952
Long-term borrowings                                          30,275
