Joseph Biden outlines how a rule-based world order is struggling to keep pace with global change, and why he thinks globalization is fueling a sense among some that open economies and multilateral agreements are actually a raw deal.

He says even the most vocal defenders of the liberal international order – of which he is one – have to recognize the shortcomings of a system built more than 70 years ago, and that open societies are not self-sustaining but require attention and maintenance.
