How should I understand " a day at the beach" underlined in the sentence below?
Thanks in advance.
Ordinary recession symptoms are, well, depressing. People buy less stuff because they feel less confident about making money in the future. Factories make less stuff because people are buying less. It can be harder to get credit. Unemployment rises, and the stock market sags. (But as I explain in Part II, the Great Depressionís symptoms made an ordinary recession look like a day at the beach.)
