depends entirely on your preferences

like statistics and maths? either degrees are good. ppe can do all the same econometrics/mathematical economics modules as the economics students. the economics students have to do the harder ones whereas ppe students can do the easier ones

prefer reading and writing? ppe has more variety for people who like phil&pol

degree prestige? economics sounds better than ppe but that's probably not a major difference

uno once in uni is it possible to switch or not

they are in two different departments so i don't think its common, easy or advisable to switch

no that's a bad way of thinking of it. there are substantially more 'good' jobs available than there are economics graduates. since economics is a good degree, it doesn't make it hard to get a good job just because there are lots of economics courses

If you're debating Warwick, then Maths, MORSE, MathStat, Economics, PPE, MathPhys, Physics, CompSci in my opinion are the strongest which will let you have a bright future. But obvs there are others and not only restricted. Getting a job is entirely on the candidate themselves.
I just finished 1st year Economics at Warwick and it is strong at Warwick. Just do a degree you enjoy.

I haven't thought about it, but I think it is relatively easy as long as you speak your personal tutors etc about it.
I think you need to get a certain average either in your first, second or both to be able to.

if you look here https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/econom...-degree-course

transfer from econ to PPE is coded "C" (if I'm reading the table correctly? it's unclear which is to and which is from lol) meaning that it's possible to transfer provided you obtain permission from relevant departments. So not automatic approval so can't comment on how likely it is.
