All the cards say they increase by 10/15/20/whatever percent.

Very nice....but it means nothing without knowing the basic rates that you gather your resources from various sources at. +20% extra gold gathering isn't so useful if you've got a 50% penalty as standard(As an imaginary example).

Also, it'd be nice to know whether the Asian civs are really a little less efficient with their resource collection, that they need the bureaucacy cards(Parts of me thinks: 'It's to counter Export'. Part of me thinks: 'They're less efficient').

Is there a list anywhere?

Another thing: Are herdables ever an option? You'd think so, but....even with Cows(Ranching), with the British, who can boost their livestock fattening three times(one standard card, one team card, and the standard upgrade), is the time and investment in Food worth the pay-off? I've been looking around, and they're never discussed. Are they 'useless'?

Actually that would be rather amazingly usefull since everything is calculated off base stats. That 50% penalty suddenly became a 30% penalty.

Even if they have a bonus or penalty on gathering, the bonus from a card or upgrade is applied to the base stat of the unit, not to the modified stat. EG. Dutch villagers don't receive a bigger boost to mining per upgrade than any other civs.
