Economics is considered as social science, right? I haven't felt like I lacked / am lacking job opportunities thus far. Perhaps it's the most practical among all the so-called social science degrees? (Although most of my classes have been heavily theorethical, which I personally liked)
Anyway, I would be inclined to say that given how the entertainment industry is growing larger and larger - and expected to keep on going, given that it'll be in high demand among emerging countries - these liberal arts degrees can be easily "spent" in that sector. I know an INFP guy that studied media & visual arts, he was hired by a film-making company and he's doing exactly what he studied for. He might not have a stellar stipend, but he's definitely far from being poor / homeless / unemployed.
