When the tragedy in Japan still unfolding, today King World News interviewed James Lucier, Managing Director at one of the top botique firms in the world, Capital Alpha Partners.  Lucier was quick to point out that the human casualties have been underestimated, “I do want to emphasize the extent of the human tragedy here.  The number that  one sees in the public press is about 15,000 people dead.  The reality according to sources in Japan is going to be higher, more like 20,000 dead.  We are talking about whole families, whole trains full of people, whole villages, tremendous human suffering.”
