The CLIR- Council for Library and Information Resources has just published a study on this very issue, framed by Tim Brooks and scut-worked by the undersigned. I have a published copy and assume it is posted on their site. 
 
It's pretty scary, and will be followed by one on copyright law. 
 
They are a look at the facts and numbers as they are, not as any side wishes them to be.
