I think there's someting just a little bit humorous about the $45 billion leveraged buyout of TXU Corp (NYSE: TXU). The new owners say they are going to help the environment buy canceling plans to build eight of 11 new coal-fired electricity plants. As if anyone would spend $45 billion in order to help the environment. Obviously it's just about pretending to be green, and at the same time, with fewer electricity plants they can charge more money for the electricity. A win for the new owners of TXU. A win for the current shareholders. Who gets screwed? Consumers of electricity.
