LightStream says it will give you a personal loan for “practically anything.”
Of course, that’s true of most personal loans: Once you qualify for a loan at a particular interest rate, you typically can spend the money on anything you want.
LightStream’s twist is that what you buy determines the interest rate you pay. If you have a credit score above 680 and a substantial credit history, LightStream has interest rates tailored for everything from buying a horse to paying for fertility treatments.
For example, a well-qualified borrower getting LightStream’s best rates on an unsecured, $25,000 three-year loan would pay:
- 1.99% APR on a new car loan

The interest rate you can get on a personal loan will vary based on your location and creditworthiness and on the lender itself.
In most cases, rates start around 10% APR for people with good credit who are taking out an unsecured loan — one that does not require collateral — from banks and credit unions.
Borrowers with excellent credit may be able to find lower rates from several online lenders, but those consumers typically also can qualify for an even cheaper 0% interest credit card.
Those with fair to poor credit may have to look a little harder for an affordable personal loan. Some online lenders aim for this end of the market, with rates from 10% to 36% APR....
Over in The Guardian Mr. Chakrabortty asks us this fascinating rhetorical question:
Why don’t we save our steelworkers, when we’ve spent billions on bankers?
Theres two answers to this, neither rhetorical.
The first is that those billions we spent upon bankers, that trillion in fact, was temporary:
Imagine what would happen if manufacturing were centred around the capital, and its executives had Downing Street on speed dial. Actually, you needn’t imagine – merely remember the meltdown of 2008. Then Gordon Brown was so desperate to save the City that the IMF estimates he propped it up with £1.2 trillion...
Study after study has highlighted the problem of growing student loan debt in America and its specific burden on people in their 20s and 30s.

Experian surveyed more than 1,000 millennials (for this surveys purposes, millennials were defined as age 19 to 34), and asked them about a variety of personal finance topics. The national online survey occurred from Aug. 14-19 and has a margin of error of plus...
Personal loans, sometimes known or termed as unsecured debt and are often charged with a lump sum fee known as an origination fee in exchange for the ability to repay over a period of time. However, for many people, personal loans are the answer to some of their immediate financial needs. Whether its completely out of necessity for buying that car youve always wanted, or that house you want your kids to grow up into, or it might just be because you dont have any other choice, such as for medical emergencies or to pay off your college tuition. Either way, loans can be somewhat of an inevitability for many adults in this fast paced world.
With each planeload evacuating Russian and British tourists, Sharm el-Sheikh can feel its life blood ebbing.
Arthur, on a fixed salary of 2000 Egyptian pounds (500 more than the minimum wage) says:
I dont know what happened on that plane. I have a feeling we are being manipulated and I prefer not to think about it. I think the West is trying to force Egypt to do the things it wants and this accident is a perfect opportunity for it to force us to, force us in a financial way.
Ahmed, a diving instructor turned taxi driver, agrees:
They want to kill us. I dont see any other explanation. Here , there are only Russian and English...
