Silly question about Unemployment

I’ve been playing Democracy 3 for a while through hard time. The problem I see is high Crime while GDP so low, low GDP causes high unemployment, Unemployment causes high Crime, and high Crime causes low GDP. The way to solve this problem is increasing Self-employee, but techincally in game more Self-employee membership doesn’t decrease Umemployment.
That’s why I’m very curious my assumption is wrong or not? How do people here think about this?
