The authors analyze investment activity of the American TNC’s for period of 2000—2010 to detect not only the formed tendencies of FDI flows and tendencies of US stock FDI, but also define the changes of the role of US TNC’s in the processes of international production. The first decade of new millennium was rather difficult for the world economy and particularly for the US economy, connecting with the financial-economic crisis. As an outcome of that crisis the role of American TNC’s began decline in a quick terms. But tendencies of American TNC’s role decline were also registered before crisis period. Such kind of results are registered both for the parent companies of US TNC’s as a whole, and for the leading American TNC’s. In some degree US TNC’s affiliates have progress abroad, but it is rather small now.
