I'd argue that most of those time-saving things are things that have 
absolutely nothing to do with dynamic typing and are perfectly possible with 
static typing. For example, things such as 
function-literals/closures/delegates (with clean syntax), reflection, having 
lots of large helpful libs, and being interpreted or JIT compiled are all 
associated with Python's (and Ruby's) productivity benefits, but none of 
those things even remotely necessitate dynamic typing.
