CNBC's Squawk Box ‘Book Club Blue Chip Award’ Given to Branson and Malkiel
Sir Richard Branson founder and chairman of Virgin was selected for his book, "Screw Business as Usual."
In his book, Branson makes the case that corporations need to step up to the plate to join with governments and charity organizations to help solve the world's greatest problems.

This morning's other recipient Burton Malkiel, the former chairman of the Economics Department at Princeton University and the author of the classic, "A Random Walk Down Wall Street" - first published in 1973 and now in its 10th edition.
Malkiel's main lesson in his book was that you can't time the market - a lesson he maintains is as relative now as it was when he first wrote the book. He says his research proves that all too often the individual investor buys high and sells low - and you know that's the big investment no-no!
