Programming is just a lot of work in statically typed languages, so
you need to work very hard to get even the basic functionality
working. You might not have energy/time/money to make proper unit
tests after/during the development.

I'm not sure whether this is because of static typing in general, or
just because current industry-standard statically typed languages
suck.
