Even with a wholesale model the publishers can keep ebook prices high by doing exactly what HarperCollins is doing (increasing the list price). Which is why the "race to the bottom" fear mongering and excuse after excuse by the publishers about how they had to collude to "save the market" were so ridiculous. The publishers still have a great deal of control over prices since retailers aren't going to sell every single book at a loss.
