Is further maths (AS/A2) needed to get into an economics course at one of the top universities (LSE/UCL/Warwick/Cambridge) if I have 4 full A levels (Maths, Econ, Geog, English Lit)?

Cambridge, warwick and LSE: pretty much yes, atleast to AS level. Warwick may be slightly lenient, sometimes
UCL: you don't need it, though it would help

Thanks, but is that just for (pure) economics? Or would that apply to all degrees with economics in them, finance, and business at these top unis?

Pure economics as these are most competitive. Obviously degrees like Stats, econ and Finance at UCL or even BMS at LSE will not require further maths as these are seen as 'easier' or 'lightweight' courses (ie. the ones no one wants to do), and employers can be aware of these kinds of things.
