Because I’m apparently having a week where I talk about fintech, here is an infographic that I found really cool:
Some notes though:
- The S&P 500 comparison is one of those classic examples of selective data extraction.
- If the infographic had decided to start the observation period in the second quarter of 2009, there is just no way that P2P lending would have looked that attractive.
- I am just saying.
Also, I think that this is obviously the positive spin on the story. There are some potential downsides – but I’ll save that for a later post.
