Roundup of Social Lending News – October 22, 2011

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.

Not a whole lot to report this week, it was a pretty quiet week on the news front. Interesting to see a blog post by Prosper CEO, Chris Larsen about the Occupy Wall Street movement and the need for regulators to embrace the call for change. Enjoy your weekend.
