Yes, I would tend to think "reasonably well written" Haskell would outperform Python, but I think this is too small of an example to really make a determination. I can't comment on Google Go. By "reasonably well written" I mean Haskell that is written without too many "rookie" mistakes like I might make. While Haskell (in general) likely has good performance, I think newbies such as myself can sometimes wind up doing things that are logically correct but inappropriate from an efficiency perspective.
