GOOG is better to own because it will trade at a discount to GOOGL because it has no voting rights. The voting right you get with the GOOGL shares are worthless bc the two head honchos control over 57% of the voting rights. Basically you pay extra for GOOGL shares with worthless voting rights....

Work for "the man" for a few years, save, and start a business in an area you enjoy.
