I haven't a clue what the US dollar is going to do and neither do most people. It is quite possible that other economies will be in a worse mess than the US. The UK is a basket case; Europe is so far behind the curve that growth may be slow for some time to come; Japan is in slow decline - it has a huge budget deficit and demographics argue against robust growth. Sure it has a trade surplus but over time that will decline.

Forecasting a currency crisis for the US dollar is a black swan event. And in any case, the US government wouldn't do anything about it.
