Definition of Lemon socialism

1. Proper noun. The practice in otherwise free market capitalist economies in which the government steps in to bailout or otherwise subsidize weak or failing firms. A government attempting to transition from capitalism to socialism by this method takes control of the worst industries — the "lemons" — first, which undermines such an approach. ¹
