Often repeated wisdom, but I've rarely seen it work like that in practice. Interpreted languages usually have huge memory overheads that forces non-trivial data out of the caches, drastically lowering performance on real world workloads.

That said, I think the trade off of increased programmer productivity but decreased program speed is actually often the right choice.
