Thought Series®

Managing your wealth is only one part of living a rewarding and full life. With that in mind, we offer the Cambridge Trust Thought Series® – events, podcasts, and original articles that address wealth management, health, family, society, and other thought-provoking topics. By combining personal experience with their best thinking, our expert contributors offer real insight into the issues confronting wealth management clients today.

Featured Topic:

Democracy and the Modern Dictator:
Adapting Authoritarianism to a Globalized World

An award-winning editor and journalist, Will Dobson is the author of "The Dictator's Learning Curve: Inside the Global Battle for Democracy." In this critically-acclaimed work, Mr. Dobson argues that today's dictators and authoritarians are far more sophisticated than ever before. They understand that in an interconnected world of technology and social media, brutal forms of intimidation are better replaced with subtle forms of coercion.

In this podcast, Mr. Dobson contrasts the success of these modern authoritarians' efforts to project a kinder, gentler image versus the regimes that still cling to the more traditional murder and mayhem approach to maintaining power.
