In terms of your prediction about a flight from the dollar, I would 
put the same three questions to you:

1. What is your general theory for the determinants of exchange 
rates? Do you rely on Shaikh for example?
2. Does the dollar play a unique role in the world economy, e.g., in 
terms of meeting liquidity requirements?
3. Can single country or even coordinated political actions affect 
exchange rates?

All the best, Rakesh
