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.
Even though many of us are gearing up for holidays there was plenty of interesting coverage of p2p lending this week. It is always good to see coverage in major publications like the Wall Street Journal and NewScientist (the latter is a very detailed article) but I would like to highlight the piece by Brett King in Finextra. King is the author of Bank 2.0 and a major critic of the current banking system. I always find his commentary on p2p lending interesting. Have a great weekend.
