What is inherently the value of a US passport outside of the 50 states in terms of legally living & working?
How much bang for the buck does this highly sought after document actually give in practice worldwide?

US passport, since it is proof of US citizenship, ONLY gives the holder the right to live & work in US. NO rights anywhere else whatsoever. As for travel without obtaining a tourist visa, US passport is not the best. A number of countries' citizens can visit more countries without a visa than Americans can.

Exactly as it is for the Dutch passport you carry. You can visit 169 nations without a tourist visa and while in those countries you have the Embassy/Consulate of a major world power to get you out of trouble.

Not much. People might want to steal it, and pass themselves off as you to gain entry to the USA, but, that's about it.

I think you've misunderstood what a passport is really all about. It's your ticket back into the country indicated by your passport. So when you come back from being "outside the 50 States" the passport from the US is your key for getting back into the US.
It's also one of several documents that is official in telling others what nation you are a citizen of. So when overseas, you might be required to prove you're an American. Your passport will do that for you.
