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.
I started creating these weekly news summaries about five months ago and this week was by far the busiest I have ever experienced as far as news goes. It seems like everyone was writing about peer to peer lending this week including some really high traffic sites. Speaking of which, if you only read one article on this list make it the GOOD article. This article was all over Twitter and Facebook this week and it is an excellent article to send to someone who doesn’t really get p2p lending. Enjoy your weekend.
