The most likely explination is that, The most likely explanation is that the generally faster languages have made common cases fast" at the expense of the rarer cases. Since exceptions are considered rare, they are made expensive to help speed up common actions, such as entering and leaving try statements. Python on the other hand, while generally slower than the other languages, uses exceptions more and has not scarified their performance.
