quick fix, there's no

(redirected from no quick fix)

quick fix, there's no

There is no rapid solution—and perhaps no solution at all—for some problem. The term dates from the 1900s and has been applied to a myriad of issues. For example, L. Eisenberg stated, “There’s no quick fix for AIDS” (Australia/New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry, September 25 1991); and “There’s no quick fix to the global economy’s excess capacity” (Telegraph, August 15, 2009). See also silver bullet.
