The newest bubble: peer-to-peer lending? from PBS Newshour – This Wall Street money manager, Doug Dachille, argues that peer to peer lending has many similarities to the sub prime mortgage crisis. I disagree with many of the assumptions and points made in this article so I decided to make a comment pointing out the flaws in the author’s assumptions. It was a critical comment, but I kept my tone completely professional. However, the editors at PBS decided to delete my comment, so this article is left unchallenged. I am very disappointed with PBS for stifling debate on this topic.
