Donald Trump is a lot of things. He's a businessman, a hotel mogul, a reality television personality and the Republican candidate for president of the United States. And earlier today, according to Google, he was also a top economist.
First noticed by CNBC, a simple Google search for "top economist" listed Trump first in its results, and a search for "top economists" listed him as third. Trump holds a bachelor's degree in economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He was listed alongside Paul Krugman and Joseph Stiglitz, the former a professor of economics at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and the latter a prof at Columbia University. Both Krugman and Stiglitz are recipients of the Nobel Prize in Economics.
Update at 4:26PM PST: A source familiar with Google reported that the Trump result was a bug and has now been fixed.
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
