Check out “The Eastern Origins of Western Civilisation” by John Hobson (Cambridge University Press) for an excellent discussion on the Chinese origins of laizze-faire (wu wei).
Hobson traces the transmission of wu-wei from Jesuit missionaries to Francouis Quesnay (aka “The European Confucius”).

Caution: Eurocentrists and Europhiles beware of this book. It will break your heart to discover that the majority of “inventions” and ideas of pre-1500 Europe are EASTERN in their origins.
