    Which degree is more valuable? Which one will open more doors? Which one gives the most financial security? Can I do jobs like investment banking etc with a chem degree??

    Investment banking only requires a degree from one of a handful of universities, your subject is irrevelant, although numerate courses (which Chemistry would count as) are sometimes preferable.

    They have the same prospects except, you can go into any number of chemically related areas with a Chemistry degree. The only thing an Economics degree offers that a Chemistry degree doesn't is the opportunity to pursue academic research in Economics, and possibly a small number of Economic research roles at e.g. NGOs or in the government/civil service. Most of these probably require you to have done a masters at least if not a PhD in Economics anyway though.
