Former Morgan Stanley Asia chairman Stephen Roach expects the US dollar to crash on the back of rising budget deficit and changing global landscape.

"The US economy has been afflicted with some significant macro imbalances for a long time, namely a very low domestic savings rate and a chronic current account deficit," Roach said in an interview with CNBC. "The dollar is going to fall very, very sharply."

The Asian market pundit expects a 35 percent drop in the greenback against other major currencies.

"These problems are going from bad to worse as we blow out the fiscal deficit in the years ahead," he said adding that the country's savings rate may slump further into the negative territory, which could potentially be the biggest plunge "for the United States or any leading economy in economic history".
