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.
