I know some friend who are following precisely that path. They want to study econ, so they're math majors in undergrad, with the intention to go on to grad for economics.
One of my brothers earned a B.S. in Math with an Econ minor. He has three masters' degrees now and is working on a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering ... he's crazy.
