littlecow Dual class stock structures are actually controversial. Supporters feel that the structure allows strong leadership to put long-term interests first while seeing beyond the near-term financial situation. Opponents feel it allows a small group of privileged shareholders to maintain control while other shareholders (with less voting power) provide the majority of the capital.
