Roundup of Social Lending News – September 17, 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.

This was a busy week for articles about p2p lending as you can see from the long list below. One article I want to point out from the list is the one with the somewhat uninformative headline, Social Lending. This article is by Rodman School of Management professor Don Tapscott and it was great to read the insights on p2p lending from such as esteemed academic and businessman.
