I'm wondering how difficult it might be to research and discover the amount of foreign investment in American interests (stock markets, banking, even maybe privately owned companies).
I just wonder how much of America is actually owned by Americans. I have a suspicion that it is probably less than half. I'm also interested to find out in what types of American service and industry other countries and foreign private entities invest.
Is this information already available? Would it be difficult to find out?
How, where, that kind of stuff...

Might I suggest a different focus for your investigation? You might find it more revealing to find the actual PERSONS who own the top multinationals. I think you will find the same few names on a majority of the boards of directors. My own guess is you would find less than a few hundred names at the top. One person can sit on many different boards at the same time. Even on those of competing companies.
