China to ease 'one route, one airline' policy for Chinese carriers | Reuters
The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), in a statement on its website, said it has revised rules in response to a changing aviation market as well as the 2019 opening of a second international airport in Beijing, which in turn is aimed at creating the world’s largest aviation hub in the city. The CAAC introduced the policy in 2009 for long-haul international routes to prevent mainly China’s state-backed airlines from competing too aggressively on routes deemed difficult to profit from.

The New World Order: Donald Trump goes it alone
All of this reflects the role of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency — something that was labelled as an “exorbitant privilege” by Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, a former French president. It is the dollar, as much as American military might, that allows the US to coerce its allies — as well as its adversaries.

The power of American sanctions and the reach of the US judicial system has been demonstrated in recent years. It is what allowed the US recently to crack down on the business of Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch with links to the Putin government. European businesses and banks were forced to cut links with Mr Deripaska’s Rusal, by the threat of secondary US sanctions.
