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.
