"Suppose that n people want to read a given publication. Suppose that they each must pay $100 (from public money) to the publisher in order to read it. It is quite possible that 100n is significantly less than $20/page for open access, given that no more than n people want to read it. "

Totally wrong for every single one of my open access papers of limited interest.
