In his keynote speech at today's LendIt Conference entitled 'New Lending for a New Economy,' Summers discusses the role and importance of online and marketplace lenders to improved borrower outcomes and economic performance. New lenders, such as LendingClub, Prosper, and SoFi, bring increased transparency and speed to the lending process.
