Yeah, something smells fishy with this math. I come to the same conclusion as you did---Amazon wants to collect all the sales for themselves.

JB,
Houghton Mifflin/ Mariner is distributing some of the Amazon Publishing titles at standard HMCO discount. However, my research revealed that these titles can still be purchased for less as eBook or paperback edition on Amazon.com. The one title I've seen the new higher price version is a French flapped trade version which a bookseller with a trade account can get from Mariner for about $1 less than on Amazon.com

Thanks for the detailed and thoughtful posts. You are asking all the right questions.
