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.
A quick note before we get into the news of the week. I have been living in Denver since 1991 and I have come to appreciate that the most important news story in this town every week from September through January is the state of the Denver Broncos football team. I have become a rabid fan these past 22 years so I will be glued to the big game come Sunday evening. Go Broncos!
