This is an old idea in the United States. And there are those who still hold that the Lochner Era was a good thing, because they believe in this kind of unethical chicanery is a natural right and they call it Freedom of Contract. Of course, all it really ever amounts to is license for the powerful to abuse the weak. And it always gets traction in tandem with increasing inequality. The two are inexorably linked.
