In the current USA-China Trade War, China Xi is taking the Prudent (中庸) approach of a partial 80% deal, while Trump is too Optimistic (or gung-ho) , insisting to accept either a “Full 100%” deal or None. Math tells you the smartest man’s approach is China Xi “Prudent” strategy.

Prudent : 3/5 score = (中庸 )

Optimist : 5/5 or 0/5 score = (Gung-Ho)
