Easier to be a professor?

Many years ago in college, I took Bill Ferguson‘s macroeconomics class, using Greg Mankiw‘s textbook. During one lecture, I remember Professor Ferguson stating something to the effect that “Mankiw can get away with that because he’s much smarter than most other economists.” Therefore, it was interesting to see Mankiw admit his weaknesses, as well as that being a professor is easier than being a student.
