It's unrealistic not to have oversight and regulations. You think this would make things more fair? The rich would walk all over you even more then they do now, and we would all be screwed. In a nice perfect world this might work if everyone started out equal. In our world we live in now, the rich would take advantage of the consumer for it's bottom line. Why wouldn't they, who would stop them?

The consumer would stop them by not buying or using their product.

Consumers wouldn't have a say. What would they stop buying, gas, food. Big corrupt business would have the say. Rules and regulations are what keep things in Balance. We don't live in Alice In Wonderland world. Didn't we learn our lesson on what deregulation gets us. Greed is a reality.
