I think the answer is socialism + capitalism. Socialism is a fantastic structure to regulate capitalism. Government-owned companies set a benchmark for quality and price outside of actually directly controlling wages or prices (both of which tend to go poorly).
Basic Income (a system whereby every person in the country is given a small amount of money every week/month, akin to a state pension) allows for the removal of the minimum wage. If everybody in the country is already getting some form of income it means the minimum wage can shrink which allows wages to be more competitive. It means start-up businesses have less of an immediate burden to support the owner/workers. It means currently un-profitable careers in the arts can be more easily pursued. It means more spending money for the middle class as well, which means a healthier economy.
There are a ton of systems like that that can prop up capitalism and help cover it's failings. Capitalism is a system that has been slowly breaking over decades but socialism is a system that has slowly been expanding for decades. I think what we need is the happy medium between the two. Enough regulation to ensure the system works for the betterment of the country, but enough freedom to ensure people can still make their fortune and chase their dreams.
People have been discussing these systems for decades now and they're finally at the point where they're being reasonably considered. Socialism is a fantastic method to stop keep capitalism in check, and capitalism is a fantastic method to keep socialism from being stifling.
And as for limiting birth-rates... that is a seriously shady system to be going into. I'd rather not, and I'd rather stay away from interfering in parenting if at all possible, because what we're basically doing there is deciding who has the right to live or not, but if push came to shove and it was evidenced to be necessary then I'd do it.
