$2 a month? That is $1 an issue.
My Economist and New Scientist subscriptions are each only $1.40 an issue, and that is for a complete, full-sized magazine, with well researched articles.
I'd say it shows the enormous profit possible when you charge close to full magazine price for something more like a large pamflet.
[Edit: Hadn't spotted it was twice monthly.]
