Depends on how you define your scope. I've seen situations where people solve the same problem in different languages, and because they have to spend so much time to do _anything_ in a low-level language, they are forced to chose a dumb algorithm, whereas people coding in a high level language can spend more time on the high level logic and can therefore chose a fast algorithm.
