The most in depth analysis of the numbers I've been able to find is from infoDev: http://www.infodev.org/en/Document.1056.pdf

In particular, the section on "Negative externalities from trade of artificially scarce assets" (section 3.4.1, starting on page 17 on the doc) talks a lot about what we're discussing here.

Isn't it because people go to video games to forget the real world where people with money can do anything they damn well want and you can't.

I would make sense that they'd be against their 'haven' following the same rule.
