Roundup of Social Lending News – September 8, 2012

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.

News was sparse in this holiday shortened week, you should be able to read all five articles below in just a few minutes. This weekend I am at the Financial Bloggers Conference, known as Fincon12, which is in Denver this year just three miles from my house. Very convenient. Over 400 financial geeks like myself are learning, sharing and having a good time. I will be sharing the short presentation I did here next week. Enjoy your weekend.
