noun
1. a remedy for all disease or ills; cure-all.
2. an answer or solution for all problems or difficulties:
“His economic philosophy is a good one, but he tries to use it as a panacea.”

I found it while going through some of my Ernest Hemingway quote collections :

The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permanent ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists.
