Every Saturday I bring you the latest news from the world of peer to peer lending. These are the best of the news articles and blog posts from around the web that I shared on Twitter this past week.
Everyone should check out the latest Prosper blog post below. Their July investor update shared this interesting tidbit: credit card delinquencies in the U.S. are the lowest on record, despite the fact that we still have high unemployment and a sluggish economy. Fascinating. There was also an excellent article this week on Kung Fu Finance by Larry from Investor Junkie, who frequently appears in these news roundups with his own blog. There were also a few Lending Club updates from bloggers. Enjoy your weekend.
