Re: First recycled issue
Well, just guessing because I don't know the exact game rules, but...
By removing the worker's right to strike, you make it easier for the owners of industry to impose any working conditions they want, thereby increasing their profit margins. This explains "Capitalist Paradise".
Now, a capitalist government is traditionally percieved as cheap to run (this may or may not be true in practice) because they don't need provide services such as free healthcare -- it's all provided at profit by non-government corporations. this reduces income tax.
(Note that although your workers are paying less income tax, they're still paying the same money for their services in the long run - it just cuts the government out of the loop. For example, in America you pay your doctor $100 dollars for a consultation. In England, you pay the government $100 income tax and it employs a doctor who sees you for "free".)
Crime has risen because the government isn't raising enough money to fund a police force. Also, you're probably having to expend a lot of police effort to break up illegal strikes.
In real life (and maybe in the game), everything is related to everything else. That's why political problems don't have easy solutions, and why nobody can agree on a single set of "common sense" policies.
