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.
Despite the UK being somewhat absorbed by the Olympic Games there were many articles from across the pond this week about p2p lending. But probably the most important article of the week came yesterday from New York Times financial columnist Ron Lieber. He has expressed concern in the past about p2p lending and while this article was about investing in general you can see that he is coming around to a more positive view of p2p lending. Enjoy your weekend.
