An interesting point around Manual Testing being cheaper than automated. The upfront cost of automated testing is certainly higher, but I wonder how the comparison looks in the long term. Unfortunately, there is the ongoing cost of maintaining automated tests, but I would think that this is smaller in the long term than the comparatively high long term cost of manual testing, especially in larger systems.
