|12.04.2011||Rainer Böhme, University of Münster: Privacy in Online Social Lending||
Online social lending is the Web 2.0’s response to classical bank loans. Borrowers publish credit applications on websites which match them with private investors. We point to a conflict between economic interests and privacy goals in online social lending, empirically analyze the effect of data disclosure on credit conditions, and outline directions towards efficient yet privacy-friendly alternative credit markets.
