Unemployment and the Russian template

I have been trying to brainstorm ways to reduce unemployment to a (albeit somewhat ambitious) target of 5%. I of course do not plan to do so through the planned economy and employment reforms but through market growth and government projects/interventionism. Now, I want to try and reach the unemployment level target by 2015 and this is how I plan to do it.

  • Introducing Universal Healthcare reform.
  • Increasing PE Defence to 200 Billion by 2015 (to allow greater employment opportunities through a revitalized domestic military industrial complex.
  • Increasing education to 200 Billion by 2015.
  • Increasing PE Health to 200 Billion by 2010.
  • Constantly starting projects and increasing funding for PE Administration and PE Others by at least 150 Billion each respectively by 2010.
  • Try to create a trade surplus by 2010.

Of course that's all the ideas I have on table, the other ways I can tackle unemployment is by slugging through those pesky tasks. However I do have others questions to ask.

1. Firstly I must admit I am very sceptical about PE Subsidies. I do not want to increase it to the point of companies laying off workers due to introducing automation, and yet, I do not want to let Subsidy spending to sink to the point companies start failing and begin laying off workers. Anyone know the optimal level of spending for this?

2. Other than doing tasks and increasing tariffs how do you create a trade surplus... (more exports than imports)...

RE: Unemployment and the Russian template

Here are two little thoughts you might want to keep in mind:

1. Since you're trying to be market-friendly:
If two individual actors have freely chosen to cooperate with each other despite having plenty of other options available, does it create any more value for them if you try to interfere through posing restrictions on them?

2. Monetary policy - I might not like it, but it seems to work

@Ajay Alcos
I find that the following templates: Iran, Russia, Columbia, and India suffer from improper balancing. There's a strong and unnatural positive correlation between economic growth and rise in unemployment.
