I agree but I refer to Singapore dollar that, according to the author, seems to be on stable path to exceed the US dollar.
We were all being told the US Dollar was toast less than 10 years ago & the EURO would become the new reserve currency of choice. That prediction looks pretty stupid today. Betting against the US economy at any point in the last 200 years has been a poor bet, Japan & China both once high flyers don't look appealing to me.

Singapore is no 36 in the GDP league & the GDP fell 4.6% in Q2 15, I won't be placing any large bets there.

USA tha the largest GDP in the world some 30 times greater than Singapore............
