The US government is drowning in lobbyist that undermine the democratic power of the people in favor of wealthy corporations/oligarchs. My question is: are there any significantly successful policies that any democratic country has enacted to curb lobbying?

I'm not terribly informed, but the only decent such policy I've heard suggested is "Democracy Dollars" by Andrew Yang. Here, he proposes every citizen gets $100 "Democracy Dollars" which they can only use to donate to politicians of their choice. The theory is that all that money would handily trump what one would otherwise receive through lobbyists, severely weakening lobbying as an effective strategy. That being said, I don't know if this policy has been applied in practice anywhere, so it may only be a theory.
