During the week I share the latest p2p lending news on Twitter as it happens. Then every Saturday I take the most interesting news items and blog posts from the past week and share them here.
I have been in London this week doing some prep work for LendIt Europe so I have been a little more quiet than usual on the blog and Twitter. But I have been getting caught up this morning and there were many interesting articles this past week so you will have plenty of good stuff to read this weekend.
The Lending Model That Bypasses the Bankers from National Journal – Thoughtful article by The Atlantic writer William Cohan on the state of our industry. He raises an interesting possibility: “that the six largest credit-card issuers in the United States…have been acting like a cartel”. Read the article, it was the most interesting of the week in my opinion.
